A SCIENTIFIC AND TRANSPARENT CALCULATION METHOD
Planet-score® is an environmental rating system based on ADEME’s Agribalyse database and other complementary key elements, such as biodiversity, pesticides, IPCC updates of climatic elements, etc.
It integrates the environmental impact from farm to fork (ingredients, their origin, cultivation or rearing methods, packaging, and transport). It reflects all the issues, without taboo, without greenwashing, however with a high level of requirements. The Planet-score® label gives relevant keys to citizens in order to choose, and to companies in order to act. To contribute to the daily fight against the decline of biodiversity, climate change, deforestation, water- and air pollution.

A CLEAR LABEL FAVOURED BY CONSUMERS
The Planet-score® is a label designed to be displayed on food products, on packaging as well as on e-commerce websites or mobile applications. It informs consumers about the environmental impact of food.
The label indicates the key points and major environmental issues related to food: pesticides, biodiversity, climate- and rearing methods. Because of its intuitive and educational aspect, the Planet-score is the label widely preferred by consumers in all the studies carried out (UFC-Que Choisir...). The Planet-score is a demanding and transparent label: it guarantees not only the absence of greenwashing but a real commitment by the food industry players who are displaying the label on their products.

A TOOL FOR A DESIRABLE AND REALISTIC TRANSITION
The Planet-score corresponds to a credible scenario of ecological transition of our eating habits, calibrated by experts in agronomy and environment. It is in line with the prospective scenarios on a European scale which show that the perspective of a sustainable food supply is not only desirable, but also realistic.
The Planet-score serves this ecological transition of food and agriculture. It shows in a transparent way the essential impacts of food, mainly due to agricultural production (on average 85%), but also to transport, packaging, processing, etc.

What is the Planet-score?

Who is behind the Planet-score?

Designed by scientists and experts concerned with the general interest, and supported by a large body of civil society, the Planet-score® is an independent and transparent methodology for the environmental labelling of food. It uses French state databases (Agribalyse ADEME) and completes them with other indicators to reflect all issues, without taboos, without greenwashing, but with a high level of requirements, from the field to the plate. The Planet-score® includes impacts on the entire life cycle of food: from production to packaging, energy and transport included.

The Planet-score® label is a relevant tool for citizens to choose, and for companies to act, in order to contribute to the daily fight against the decline of biodiversity, climate change, deforestation, water- and air pollution.

The ITAB and Very Good Future are working to develop the Planet-score, in collaboration with Sayari, a specialist consultancy, and in close cooperation with civil society. A large number of environmental NGOs, consumer associations and stakeholders involved in the transition have provided their expertise and contributions to the development of the label and are involved in the developments and reflections to maintain the highest level of requirements on key environmental and societal issues.

Planet-score is supported by donations and patronage, and ensures its mission of general interest in the service of the transition in particular through foundations such as the 1% for the Planet
