PRé at the [avniR] conference

EVENT | Join us at the [avniR] conference in Lille, France on November 7-8, where Laura Golsteijn and Tjeerd Raijmakers from PRé will give a presentation on the awareness raising and capacity building regarding the European Commission’s Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) initiative.

October 22, 2018

Industry experts, academics, as well as business professionals and policy advisors from a wide range of sectors will meet at the 8th edition of the [avniR] conference, 7 and 8 November. Amongst others, textiles, construction, food, and transportation sectors will be represented. The conference focusses at the challenges related to life cycle thinking, and the way life cycle management can be used as the pathway for ecotransition. With life cycle thinking as the basis for analyses of products and services, policy, scientific articles, and education, new developments can be steered in an appropriate direction.


PRé will be represented by Tjeerd Raijmakers and Laura Golsteijn from the consultancy department. They will give a presentation on the awareness raising and capacity building regarding the European Commission’s Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) initiative, something PRé has been working on in 4 Mediterranean countries (Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia) as part of the SwitchMed programme.


More specifically, PRé facilitated access of companies from this region to the outcomes of the pilot phase in two ways:

  • Exposing national stakeholders to the potential impact of the PEF system for the national economies with focus on industrial branches exporting to the European market. PRé designed and executed workshops for a wide audience to raise national awareness.
  • Assisting in the performance of shadow PEF studies based on interest of local industries and availability of LCA national expertise. PRé helped local experts with the execution of their shadow PEF study by providing online webinars, answering technical questions, biweekly progress meetings, providing feedback to SimaPro models, and critically reviewing PEF reports.


PRé's presentation at [avniR] aims at sharing the experiences gained during this project and discussing the applicability of PEF outside of Europe. You are cordially invited to join us on Wednesday November 7th between 11:30am and 12:30pm at the session B 'Environmental Labelling, a value added for my company?'You are also welcome to make an appointment to meet with us during the conference.
