EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) is an international certification system established in Sweden. EPD provides relevant, verified and registered information about the environmental impact of a product or service. This voluntary declaration is based on the LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), which outlines the consumption of resources (materials, water, energy) and the impact on the surrounding environment in the various stages of the product’s life cycle. Raw material extraction and transport to the production plant, manufacture and disposal of the product are the essential stages in the life cycle of a product.
The results are briefly presented through a series of environmental indicators, such as the amount of carbon dioxide emitted or GWP (Global Warming Potential) per declared unit of product (e.g. per ton).
