PEFCR Workshop Day

Introducing Sustainable Credibility 

ESTC is happy to announce that the PEFCR workshop will be held on December 12, 2023 in Brussels at the Hilton Hotel Grand Place. This will be an informative session for ESTC members only. The workshop will focus on updating attendees about the PEFCR project, which is led by ESTC and aims to calculate the environmental footprint of synthetic turf systems. This EU-funded project started in 2020 and is set to be finalized by the end of this year.

Software tool for PEF impact calculation
At the request of ESTC, a software tool is being developed to facilitate the use of the PEF Category Rules, which will be presented during the workshop. This tool will assist members in understanding and implementing the PEFCR effectively.

Speaker from the European Commission confirmed
Mr Mauro Cordella from the European Commission’s Environmental Footprint (DG Environment) team has accepted our invitation to present the Commission’s view on the PEF concept and how this will be implemented. This will be a unique opportunity to address all your questions to the Commission directly.

On December 11, we will organise a networking evening event at Brewdog, providing an opportunity for attendees to connect and build relationships within the industry.
