our Work

The consortium work is based on
four pillars.

A science-based method

for measuring environmental impacts throughout the life cycle of products, based on the principles of the European Union’s PEF scientific method.

A database

of environmental impacts of standard ingredients and raw materials used in formulas and packaging.

A harmonized scoring system

containing a score range enabling the consumer to easily compare products.

A tool

usable by non-experts, that enables each brand to calculate the environmental impact of individual products and the associated scoring.
