Environmental Product Declarations

What is an Environmental Product Declaration?

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a verified (and registered) document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life cycle environmental performance of your products.

Environmental Product Declarations according to ISO 14025 and/or EN 15804 support companies in proving their responsibility for providing relevant product related environmental information.
