Welcome on the Base IMPACTS ® website of ADEME, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency.

The Base IMPACTS ® is the official database of the French program for environmental labeling of consumer goods. It has been built in parallel to the Product Category Rules (PCRs).

To know more about the format of the database, the caracterisation methods or the data sources, please refer to the documentation on this website.

Usage tips

Do not hesitate to consult the sectoral documentation available on the Base IMPACTS website.
This allows you to quickly obtain a synthetic vision of :

  • (i) all available datasets by sector,
  • (ii) the main methodological choices taken into account when developing the datasets.

It also allows you to better understand the different types of datasets available in the database (LCI, partially aggregated LCI...) and to use/combine them correctly.
