EPD – Environmental Product Declaration

An EPD® (Environmental Product Declaration) is a third-party verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life-cycle environmental impact of products. The International EPD® System is a global programme for environmental declarations based on ISO 14025 and EN 15804.

Companies constantly advertise their products as sustainable, ecofriendly, or green. However, without evidence and third-party verified documents, those claims can easily be nothing more than “greenwashing”.

This is where an environmental product declaration (EPD) comes into play; with having done a third party verified EPD for your product, any claim regarding its environmental performance will be credible and supported with evidence.

Product EPD is an effective way to benchmark your product against those of your competitors and become prominent in a competitive market. Additionally, this is an effective way to demonstrate the environmental awareness of your actions and enhance your brand reputation by providing objective and transparent information about the environmental performance of your products to your customers.

With LEED, BREEAM, DGNB and other green-building certification protocols awarding additional points for products with EPDs, such products will stand out among the competition and are more likely to be selected.
