Uptake of the product environmental footprint across the MED agrofood regional productive systems


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.
