As preparation of a debate with Michele Galatola, EC, DG Environment (PRO) and Matthias Finkbeiner, Technical University Berlin (CONTRA) we would like to get a better picture of your concerns/hopes in the discourse. The debate will take place at the 2nd PEF World Summit (1-2 October, Berlin).

Background:
Currently hundreds of organisations are developing specific rules for various product categories - testing the applicability of the product environmental footprint (PEF) method in a 3 year pilot process. The aim of the EU Environmental Footprint Initiative is to provide a basis for potential future environmental policies based on a life cycle approach. Instead of welcoming this initiative several LCA experts regard environmental footprinting rather as a threat, undermining the credibility of life cycle analysis. Supporters see the initiative as an enabler for efficient decision-making and effective environmental communication. What is your opinion?

Please share your thoughts here or PM me directly. Thanks.

PEF is going mainstream! Germany's biggest weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT dedicates 2 pages on Environmental Footprinting! We do not agree with everything, but it is a nice introduction to the topic.

Hauptsache Öko: Die EU will mit PEF ein neues Supersiegel nicht nur für Lebensmittel einführen. Es soll zeigen, welche Umweltfolgen ein Produkt hat. Was steckt dahinter?
