Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs)

Deliver transparency into a product’s environmental impacts, from cradle-to-grave. 

Now, more than ever before, buyers are demanding to know the full extent of a product’s environmental and health impacts. From raw material extraction, production, and packaging to distribution, end-use, and disposal, transparency into the impacts of a product at each stage of its lifecycle has become a critical driver of purchases and specifications.

Manufacturers that voluntarily disclose all of their products’ cradle-to-grave impacts are seen as trailblazers in the sustainability marketplace. Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) enable manufacturers to make those disclosures in a credible, streamlined, and universally understood manner. Thus, EPDs demonstrate a manufacturer’s commitment to sustainability and showcases that manufacturer’s willingness to go above and beyond—all in the name of transparency and clarity.

What is an EPD?

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a comprehensive, internationally-harmonized report that documents the ways in which a product, throughout its lifecycle, affects the environment. Similar to, but far more robust than, the concept of a “nutrition label,” an EPD tells the complete sustainability story of a product in a single, written report.

Typically, an EPD will include information about a product’s impact on global warming, ozone depletion, water pollution, ozone creation, and greenhouse gas emissions. An EPD can also include other impacts that are of particular interest to the discloser, such as human toxicity risk and corporate social responsibility.

EPDs act as neither product ratings nor ecolabels; rather, they help architects, designers, specifiers, and other purchasers better understand a product’s sustainable qualities and environmental repercussions. As such, EPDs equip manufacturers with a valuable tool for differentiation and empower customers to make more informed purchasing decisions.
