Design Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) in a reasonable and consistent way!

The Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) aims to develop a unified methodology for environmental assessment of products based on a life-cycle approach. The industry basically supports this approach. However, past experience with the product-specific PEF pilot projects means that serious methodological deficiencies have to be eliminated. PEF only then can become a meaningful, voluntary and internationally accepted tool for the environmental evaluation of products.
