Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) for the packaging industry  

With remarkable success, the 5th AGMPM webinar was conducted in October 8, 2021 on the field of environmental accounting and valuation tools with title: Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) for the packaging materials’ sector. The webinar’s speaker was Mr. Georgios Karakatsanis, Natural Resources’ Economist, Co-founder and Director of EVOTROPIA Ecological Finance Architectures that is specializing in Circular Economy data analytics, digitization and consultancy services.  

The PEF will comprise the primary tool of corporate environmental cost assessment in the EU-27 as integral part of the “EU Green Deal”. The webinar discussed the PEF method’s background, its superiority compared to conventional Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methods, its various quantitative and technical aspects, as well as its extensions for the financial sector and industrial investments from 2023. More than 80 participants from the Greek packaging industry responded with enthusiasm, submitting many questions and observations, leading to a very interesting and fruitful discussion. After this warm response, the AGMPM, in collaboration to EVOTROPIA, will further highlight the importance of this crucial issue, organizing similar events in the near future.
