An EPD, or Environmental Product Declaration, is a document that provides transparent and comparable information about the environmental impact of a product throughout its entire life cycle. 

The environmental impact is divided into separate categories, from energy consumption, to acidification potential. Every step of the product’s life is taken into account, from raw materials to the final item. In the construction industry, EPDs are becoming increasingly widespread as architects, builders, and property owners strive to create more sustainable and energy-efficient buildings. EPDs are essential for life-cycle assessments and they allow construction professionals can use them to make more informed decisions about the materials they use. Additionally, EPDs can help architects to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship both to their clients and to the general public.
