Today we often talk about our environment and how we can reduce our own environmental impact. Comparing the environmental footprint of different products is in that context an interesting aspect. An EPD, that is, environmental product declaration, provides transparent and comparable information about a product’s environmental impact, and is thus a useful instrument.
We need to understand our environmental impact and reduce it.
An EPD is based on a life cycle analysis that maps the product’s environmental impact over its entire life cycle. This provides a very good basis for understanding our environmental impact and identifying opportunities for improvement.
We want to provide our customers with reliable and credible information about our product’s environmental performance.
An EPD is third-party reviewed, which means that our declaration is quality-reviewed and we can therefore communicate our product’s environmental performance in a reliable and credible way.
We must ensure compliance with current and future legal requirements.
As the sustainability requirements on companies rise, it is becoming increasingly important to implement a structured and active sustainability program. The process of producing EPDs and the results they provide ensure a good basis for this sustainability work both for us and our customers, regardless of whether we operate in an industry that has this as a current legal requirement or not.
