Environmental Footprint database

The Environmental Footprint (EF) database is designed to support the use of product environmental footprint category rules (PEFCR) and organization environmental footprint sector rules (OEFSR). It contains secondary EF-compliant life cycle inventory datasets and a compatible EF impact assessment method. The Environmental Footprint database is part of the European Commission’s Single Market for Green Products Initiative.

The EF database 3.1 is currently under development. It is expected that EF-compliant datasets tendered by the European Commission will be made available in SimaPro format in Q1 of 2023.
