Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) provide construction and other manufacturers with formal environmental assessment and verification of their products and services. EPDs are developed based on international standards, using a quantitative technique called Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
With the establishment and launch of the Australasian EPD Programme in 2014, manufacturers now have access to an EPD Programme Operator offering a new, robust, science-based communication method for demonstrating the environmental credentials of their products and services. EPDs are increasingly gaining recognition in building environmental rating schemes globally, including Green Star in New Zealand.
