Product Environmental Footprints (PEFs) originate from the European Commission’s Single Market for Green Products initiative. Objective of PEF was to develop a common methodology on the quantitative assessment of environmental impacts of products throughout their life-cycle, in order to support the assessment and labeling of products.
