We carry out Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) in accordance with standard ISO 14025 to classify the sustainability of construction products and services.
It is an objective method to quantify the environmental impact of product manufacturing processes and requires independent third party data verification.
There is a set of product category rules, PCR, to guarantee the comparability principle.
Regulation 305/2011, which establishes conditions for the marketing of construction products and which repeals Directive 89/106/EEC, considers that “For the assessment of the sustainable use of resources and of the impact of construction works on the environment, Environmental Product Declarations should be used when available”.
- Verification of Type III environmental declarations, in accordance with ISO 14025.
- System based on Life-Cycle Analysis, in accordance with ISO 14040 – 14044.
- Support to the business sector in the search and development of the relevant certification, adapted to international markets.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
- Voluntary Eco-labelling: assesses the sustainable use of resources and the environmental impact of a product with respect to its production, use and durability in construction works.
- The EPD is ideal for the exchange of environmental information between manufacturers and/or suppliers and their customers.
- EPDs have a limited validation period.
- Detection of factors in the production process that lead to environmental impact..
- Reduction of environmental impact, minimising CO2 emissions.
- Improved value chain.
