The European Commission is currently exploring how to use the Product and Organisation Environmental Footprint methods in policies. In this context they have launched a series of consultations on this subject. An open consultation will soon start on a product policy framework for the circular economy, with a section dedicated to the Environmental Footprint. The link to this consultation will be published soon.
In addition, a series of targeted questionnaires have been launched, focusing specifically on potential policies implementing the Environmental Footprint methods.
They were developed for:
- businesses and business associations;
- investors and financial institutions;
- public administrations ;
- NGOs and
- method/ initiative owners.
The deadline for providing answers is 18 December 2018. Please provide your input by following the links in the list above according to the stakeholder group you represent.
