The idea of “net of PCRs” was introduced for the food sector to increase coordination of methodological issues across PCRs. 
Interesting EPD case studies were presented by companies such as Coop Italia, Barilla and BYK Chemie.
Important feedback was given on what the International EPD System should focus on going forward. Summarized by Massimo Marino, chairman of the Technical Committee, they were realiability, governance, harmonization between different systems and communication.
