OUR Expertise. Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

At SDS, we provide expertise to developing and delivering EPD documentation. We can help you to find the right product category rules and EPD database standards as well. EPD can help clients and business by explaining product details clearly to the intended market both from sustainability and product point of view.

 An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable data and other relevant environmental information about the life-cycle environmental impact of a product. The documentation includes series of datasets collected through using multiple environmental impacts including contribution to climate change, carbon footprint, air, water, soil pollution and resource depletion. These datasets revolve around energy consumption, renewable resources, and emissions to air, water and soil.

The basis of any EPD documentation is grounded on a life cycle assessment (LCA). LCA is extremely important in assessing the product cycle but also to build a solid EPD document of the product. Environdec stats that “An EPD is a so-called type III environmental declaration that is compliant with the ISO 14025 standard. A type III environmental declaration is created and registered in the framework of a programme, such as the International EPD® System “.
