WHAT IS AN EPD?
The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an environmental certification classified as Type III that quantifies and verifies the life cycle of products and goods as cited in the International Standards Organization (ISO) 14025. EPDs help customers that are environmentally driven for the performance of a product to make the best decisions when choosing goods or services among different providers.
An EPD is a comprehensive report disclosing the environmental impacts of a product over its cradle-to-grave-life cycle. What's key about an EPD is that is an internationally recognized, single, comprehensive disclosure of a products environmental impact throughout its lifecycle. EPDs are documents that provide quantified environmental data using predetermined parameters and, where relevant, additional environmental information.
