About Environmental Footprint

As part of the Single Market for Green Products initiative, the European Commission has launched the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) and Organizational Environmental Footprint (OEF) methods to ensure quality and increase transparency of environmental information and to facilitate comparisons between products’, services’ and organisations’ environmental performance. The Swedish translation of Environmental Footprint (EF) is Miljöavtryck.

The Product Environmental Footprint has the overall aim to improve the environmental performance of products and services in the European market through a combination of market pressure and policy instruments


About the project: 

Environmental footprint in Sweden – increased competence and communication is a collaborative project conducted within the competence center Swedish Life Cycle Center, at Chalmers University of Technology, with funding from Vinnova, Sweden’s innovation agency. The project runs from 1 November 2020 to 31 December 2021. The project group consists of LCA experts and researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, IVL Swedish Environmental Institute, KTH, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden and has a broad base and involvement of representatives from industry, authorities and industry associations.


Expected project results are examples of the application of the PEF methodology to understand its scope and outcome, a larger Swedish resource and competence base, greater participation in EU processes and increased dissemination of information.
