n April 2013 the European Commission published the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) method. This method is a framework of general requirements and principles for LCA. The European Commission aims to develop more specific technical guidance for product groups (‘category rules’) and tests the development of PEFCR with several European industrial sectors. In 2014, the second wave of 11 PEF food pilots started, which involves food product groups such as red meat, dairy, beer, wine, pasta. Blonk Consultants supports the development of three pilots (feed, beer and red meat). Since it is the goal of PEFCRs is to support the communication of the environmental performance of products, data consistency and compliance with PEFCR requirements is key.
