NEF was established in 2015 by the working group for Sustainable Consumption and Production under Nordic
Council of Ministers (NMR). The aim is to coordinate the Nordic countries authority work within PEF and to
disseminate knowledge regarding PEF to Nordic stakeholders. The participants of the group include national
representatives in the Steering Committee (SC) and Technical Advisory Board (TAB) organized to support the EU
Commission 25 PEFCR and OEFSR pilot projects.
