Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)
An environmental product declaration is a method of communicating a product's environmental characteristics that can be used for all types of products or services. According to ISO 14025 environmental declarations are based on life cycle assessment.
An environmental product declaration based on life cycle assessment is an extremely good way of meeting the customer's and authorities' demands for credible, easy to understand and comparable environmental information. The underlying life cycle assessment is also a very good basis for further improving the product's environmental characteristics.
