Meeting of the Technical Secretariat for the "Hot and cold water supply pipes within the building" PEF pilot.
Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) is the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) based method to calculate the environmental performance of a product and organization. It was developed by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre based on existing, extensively tested and used methods.
Currently the industry is going through the 3rd and final year of the pilot phase which was launched in 2013 together with The Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) Guide with the goal of developing a harmonized European method of measuring environmental performance of products and organisations. The outcomes of the pilot will then be used by the Commission while evaluating specific policy tools related to PEF and OEF.
