Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)
Product EPDs made easy With an EPD in hand, you are able to transparently communicate your product’s environmental profile to your customers – from the honest outsider’s perspective. Compiling an EPD will also help you identify various eco-design hotspots in your product design and help you make more sustainable decisions to win even more customers. It will give you the ‘big picture’ – overview of your product potential – from cradle to grave. The Environmental Product Declaration itself is essentially an externally verified and standardized description of the environmental profile of your product. Increasingly demanded by certifications, investors and green building professionals an EPD can be used to power other sustainable design tools, such as a Building Life Cycle Assessment.
