    PEF Consultation

    The European Commission currently offers another period of public consultation and this time on the EU Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules (PEFCR). As communicated before, a scientific and evidence-based approach to methodology is lacking in the current process. Without correction, fossil fuel-based textiles will be advantaged above those made of natural fibres.

    This part of the consultation process can be challenging, and we offer a step-by-step guide on how to access it. We also offer a DRAFT response, particularly aimed at textiles made from animal fires.

    This consultation is open until 24 September and we encourage you to raise your concerns.

    I really tried to enter the consultation, but it is impossible with a Norwegian cell-phone number. We have few too digits and therefore cannot access the code one needs. Tone

      Hi Tone, Angus will refer you privetely to some Norwegian floks who managed to apply so they can help you out.

      Thanks for the support!

        Hi Willy,

        Thanks. Yes, Kirsi is the only one here who has managed to enter the site, so she has a log-on. So SIFO will be writing an extensive and really good criticism, that will probably say the same as I would say. Agnus will probably ask Kirsi to help me; but I don’t know if it is even possible to ‘remote’ guide someone else. Therefore I am going to use my journalistic voice to be critical, both in EcoTextile News and in, who want a piece next week. I think that will actually be more powerful. T;)

    Dear all,

    This is the registration for the basic training on the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) method.

    The European Commission is organizing a webinar for ‘newbies’ on the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) method on 8 October 2021 at 10h.

    The purpose of this webinar is to introduce the general concept of the PEF method to participants without technical knowledge on Life Cycle Assessment or on the Environmental Footprint methods. The webinar will address questions such as what is PEF, who can apply it and on which products, what are the results of a PEF study and how they can be used. We would be glad if you could join and participate.

    To save your ‘seat’, please register here: and feel free to share it with your friends/colleagues.

    The connection details will be communicated by email as an outlook invitation two days ahead of the webinar.

    We hope to see you there!

    EF team
