WP 2: Tailoring environmental data collection from a regional perspective

A non-standardised way of obtaining and managing input data to feed the integrated method which has been developed in WP1 can result in very inconsistent and variable information. To face this, WP2 aims to provide an affordable and comprehensive data collection system, oriented to be used by the different industrial actors involved in the food chain (most of them SMEs), that will enhance gathering environmental product information while ensuring consistency and comparability of compiled data.

Furthermore, a simplified tool to collect input data, transfer them along food chain, integrate it and provide understandable and comprehensive sustainability information through key indicators will be obtained, the SENSE-tool.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 288974.
