Press Release: Food packaging: a practical guide to environmental footprint labelling

Food packaging waste is currently under scrutiny. In the context of its Circular Economy Action Plan1 , the EU is addressing this through, among others, its Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) initiative2 , which aims to enhance the reliability of environmental claims — both in a business-to-consumer and in a business-to-business context. The initiative aims, therefore, to boost the market of green and circular products. However, a review of the methods available for assessing the environmental sustainability of packaging now highlights the difficulty of clearly characterising packaging’s environmental impact. The study suggests a new, fully quantifiable framework that could help to standardise assessment methods and bring ‘environmental footprint labelling’ to fruition.
