About the SMGP initiative and PEF
To become “environmentally-friendly” or obtain “eco-labels”, products and services can use a variety of voluntary methods to stand out within their product category or sector. In the European Union alone, there are over 230 eco-labels, but for companies trying to market their products as environmentally friendly, striking the right balance between market opportunities and challenges can be difficult. The wide variety of “ecolabels” – each with its own methodological requirements – may result in additional costs for the companies, and in confusion for the consumers.
To address these issues, enhance comparability within a product category, and give clear indicators to producers and consumers alike, the European Commission in 2013 introduced the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) methodology under the Single Market for Green Products (SMGP) initiative.
