For most industries, decarbonization of the supply chain plays the most significant role in the race towards the net-zero emissions target. Downstream customers and increasing political regulations are forcing supplier companies to disclose the environmental performance of their products in a transparent, comparable, and trustworthy way.
Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are the communication tools that help companies meet these requirements. Based on the consistent Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology, EPDs enable quantification of the environmental impact of products. Therefore, they serve as a reliable source of information for comparison and selection of suppliers.
Moreover, EPDs is a communication format that is integrated into building and construction workflows and used extensively by green building certification schemes such as LEED, BREEAM, or DGNB International. By using EPDs, companies can gain a competitive advantage in green public procurement. Marketing can refer to EPDs to verify environmental claims for products.
