The environmental footprint guidelines build on existing life cycle methodology (from raw materials to end of life / waste management), and are based on ISO 14044 and the ILCD (International Reference Life Cycle Data System) Handbook. They also consider (and incorporate as much as possible), a range of other existing standards and guidelines from areas as diverse as Carbon Accounting, Water Footprinting and GRI Sustainability Reporting.
Although it is not yet decided whether the new environmental footprint guidelines will become the basis for a mandatory reporting scheme for products and corporations in Europe in the future. It is however highly likely that in Europe they will become the standard (either voluntary or mandatory), for making green claims and communicating the ecological environmental footprint of products and organisations
The published environmental fooprint guidelines should be seen as two elements within a wider environmental footprinting initiative. The documents also provide guidance on how to create sector-specific and product group-specific methodological requirements for use in Organisation Environmental Footprint Sector Rules (OEFSRs) and Product Environmental Category Rules (PEFCRs), respectively.
