Feed PEFCR first to be approved by the European Commission
The Feed PEFCR
was the first PEFCR to be officially approved by the European Commission. On 15 February 2018 the PEFCR ‘Feed for Food Producing Animals’ was approved by a large majority at the Environmental Footprint Steering Group Meeting in Brussels.
During the development of the feed PEFCR, Blonk Consultants supported the Technical Secretariat of the PEF pilot on ‘Feed for Food producing Animals’, chaired by FEFAC, the European Feed Manufacturers' Federation. This involved all the technical work needed to define the representative product, the screening study and drafting the PEFCR.
The feed PEFCR is a crucial building block for the feed industry’s efforts to develop a framework for conducting meaningful LCA studies. It provides important pointers for calculating the environmental footprint of feed products and production, and complements other activities such as the development of a global feed LCI database and a global feed LCA tool. Blonk Consultants and its Agri-footprint database are helping the industry to achieve its ambitious agenda.
