Uptake of the product environmental footprint across the MED agrofood regional productive systems
FROM PEFMED TO PEFMED PLUS
PEFMED is the largest transnational initiative ever carried out in the Mediterranean space to encourage a pool of companies from 9 Mediterranean agri-food regional systems belonging to 6 Mediterranean Countries (Italy, Spain, France, Portugal, Greece and Slovenia) to green the own production according to the new EU Product Environmental Footprint method (PEF), the unique next-generation method to assess the environmental performances of a product during its lifecycle.
Between 2016-2019, hundreds of companies, LCA specialists, business analysts and national agri-food associations cooperate to foster targeted systemic eco-innovation interventions within industrial clusters, raise the market value of PEF-compliant productions and galvanize the regional Smart Specialization Strategies (RIS3) goals related to innovation in agri-food and industrial production.
The European project “PEFMED – Uptake of the Product Environmental Footprint across the MED Agri-food Regional Productive Systems to Enhance Innovation and Market Value”, running from November 2016 till July 2019, was financed by the Interreg Mediterranean Programme to promote eco-innovation in the food and drink industry in the Euro-Mediterranean area, by coupling environmental and socio-economic aspects.
