LIFE MAGIS is a project co-funded by the LIFE programme of the European Union, aimed at promoting a standardised methodology - the PEF (Product Environmental Footprint) - to measure the environmental impacts of products and provide consumers with an assessment tool for informed and conscious purchasing choices, based on the environmental performance of products. PEF is a reliable and verifiable methodology that measures the environmental footprint along the entire life cycle of a product considering 16 specific indicators that address impacts on soil, water, air and human health, providing fundamental knowledge to find more sustainable solutions for the environment.

LIFE MAGIS is promoted by ENEA, the project leader, and the Institute of Management of the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, which acts as the project's technical partner. Lineapelle participates by providing expertise and coordinating the studies for the leather area, an important item of Made in Italy.
