The European Food Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) Round Table adopts framework to assess environmental impact of food

On 20 November 2013, The European Food Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) Round Table adopted, during its plenary meeting, the ENVIFOOD Protocol, a harmonised framework methodology to assess the environmental impact of food products.

Following public consultation and pilot testing of the nineteen participants involved (including companies, sectoral associations, academia and others), the Round Table adopted the final methodology for the ENVIFOOD Protocol. The Protocol lays the ground for the upcoming Commission Environmental Footprint methodology pilots for food and drink products, to be launched in 2014 and in which the Round Table will play an active role.

The plenary welcomed high level speakers from the EU institutions, industry and academia including: Pavel Misiga, (Head of Unit at the European Commission’s DG Environment), Alexandre Meybeck, (UN Food and Agriculture Organisation) as well as key experts from the French, Dutch and Swiss national governments.
