Environmental Product Declarations – A key requirement in external facade selection
Specifying eco-friendly and sustainable products is one way to reduce the impact of building and construction on the natural environment. With the plethora of building products on the market, objective and unbiased environmental information is needed to enable architects and specifiers to compare similar products based on their environmental performance. For this purpose, no tool is more important than Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs).
In this whitepaper, we take a closer look at EPDs, what they are, how they work, and their benefits. In doing so, we demonstrate the importance of EPDs in design and construction, and their positive impact on sustainable building, particularly in the context of external facade selection.
