European Food SCP Round Table Plenary – 21st November 2012
Working Group 1 – The objective
Development of principles/guidelines on the
environmental assessment of food and drink
products including their packaging.
Establishment of a framework assessment
methodology for food and drink products,
including – where appropriate – product
category specification, by 2011 (interim report
by 2010), building on international standards
and existing and emerging methodological
developments at national and EU level,
including the work of the European Commission
and its Joint Research Centre.
