The European Commission’s Directorate General for the Environment and the Directorate General for the Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG ENV and DG GROW) recently launched a call for volunteers during the transition phase of the Environmental Footprint. The transition phase follows the pilot phase concluded in 2018 and is meant to guide the process until the possible adoption of policies implementing the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) and Organisation Environmental Footprint (OEF) methods.

The main aims of the transition phase are to provide a framework for

  • monitoring the implementation of existing Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules (PEFCRs) and Organisation Environmental Footprint Sector Rules (OEFSRs);
  • developing new PEFCRs/ OEFSRs;
  • new methodological developments.

The call for volunteers

The call for volunteers concerns the development of new PEFCRs/ OEFSRs, the full revision of existing PEFCRs/ OEFSRs and the integration of “shadow pilots” (PEFCRs and OEFSR developed outside of the pilot phase in the period 2013-18) among the officially listed ones.

The deadline for applications is the 7th of June 2019 at 12h (midday). Send applications to the e-mail address [email protected].
