European Product Environmental Footprint

Since 2015, Lyreco has been involved in a European project initiated by the European Commission: the EU Product Environmental Footprint (EU PEF)

EU PEF 5x5

 

WHAT IS THE EU PEF?

The EU PEF is new method to measure the environmental footprint of our products.

Lyreco is the first BtoB company to officially assess one of its own label products with this new method. 

 

The objective of the EU PEF is to define a common European evaluation methodology for different types of consumer products aimed at:

  1. Measuring the environmental impact of the product across its lifecycle
  2. Improving customers awarness and information in this area
  3. Encouraging companies to pursue the continuous improvement of their brands


 

EU PEF LIFECYCLE 9x9

A COMPREHENSIVE & TRANSPARENT METHOD

The EU PEF methodology measures the environmental impact

  1. At each step the product lifecycle: Raw Materials, Packaging, Manufacturing, Distribution, Product end-of-life

     

  2. Through 16 environmental criteria: Climate Change, Water scarcity, Land use, Particulate matter, Resource use
