Abstract: ¿Food and drink¿ products are the basis of life. They are also widely recognized contributors to the environ-mental impacts associated with European production and consumption. It is therefore essential to quantify and improve the environmental performance of food and drink product life cycles. This must be done in a coherent and quality assured manner. The European Commission¿s Joint Research Centre (JRC) is directly involved in this commitment in order to support business and policy makers. This is achieved by working together closely with business representatives through projects such the European Platform on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and the Food Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) Round Table. Key objec-tives and deliverables of these projects as well as the related processes and stakeholders involved are high-lighted in this paper.
