An EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) is a verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life-cycle environmental impact of a product.
The International EPD System is a global programme for environmental declarations based on ISO 14025 and EN 15804.
Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are Eco-labels that display data of predetermined environmental parameter categories according to the international standard ISO 14025.
EPDs aim at supplying and easily communicating reliable and externally verified environmental information and provide a platform for the fair comparison of the environmental performance of products and services.
Why is Environmental Product Declarations important?
There is a rapidly growing demand for quantitative environmental information from companies and their stakeholders. Based on Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), EPDs provide this kind of information with an exact, reliable, objective, and verifiable way.
Environmental Product Declarations are being used internationally in the procurement processes of public and private sectors, as dependable evidence of the environmental performance of materials and services. Moreover, the quantified, structured and homogenized information supplied by the EPDs, enables the Eco-design and Eco-innovation for products and services.
