One year after the first public event organized by the project, the LIFE MAGIS partners came back on March 30, 2022 to present the results obtained in the last few months.
The LIFE MAGIS project, coordinated by ENEA and co-funded by the LIFE Programme of the European Union, aims to support the diffusion of the Made Green in Italy scheme, promoted by the Italian Ministry of the Ecologic Transition to valorise the Italian products with the best environmental performances. The project works also to spread the Product Environmental Footprint, the method to calculate the environmental impact of products developed by the European Commission and on which the scheme is based.
Organizations representing the value chains involved in LIFE MAGIS, supported by the technical partners involved in the project, developed proposals for Regole di Categoria di Prodotto (in English Product Category Rules), i.e. the guidelines to be used to apply the calculation method to specific products, for both Made Green in Italy and Product Environmental Footprint.
More than twenty pilot companies have been involved to test these Rules to calculate the environmental impact of their production and identify improvement options.
During the event the work done for Made in Italy products involved in the project (onion of Medicina, sheep hard cheese, wooden windows, finished leathers, coffee, ice-cream, Italian seasonal leavened cakes, and non-puff pastries) will be presented, also to share the gained experience with other Italian supply chains willing to embark in a similar activity.
In addition, representatives from the Italian Ministry of the Ecologic Transition, managing the Made Green in Italy scheme and opening a second line of funding for the development of new Product Category Rules, and the European Agency CINEA, managing the LIFE Programme, will speak at the event.
