Looking for a way to communicate your product’s environmental profile to your clients - unbiased and verified? Want to learn more about your product’s environmental impacts to identify efficient eco-design options
An Environmental Product Declaration is externally verified and in a uniform and internationally recognized format. More and more demanded by architects and planners, it can directly be used in sustainable building design tools, e.g. to carry out a building Life Cycle Assessment.
PE supports you
We perform a thorough environmental analysis of your product (LCA) which you can use for internal environmentally conscious product development. PE is a “one-stop-EPD shop”, no matter what Environmental Product Declaration system: US based systems such as UL, NSF or ASTM, the German IBU declaration, the French FDES declaration, the UK BRE Environmental Profile declaration or the latest member of the Environmental Product Declaration family the European ECO declaration.
Besides the product declaration itself, an Environmental Product Declaration project with PE INTERNATIONAL provides you a thorough insight into and a “big picture view” on your product – from cradle to grave - to identify your product’s potentials.
PE guaranties highest quality due to an internal EPD-quality management and a standardized approach. PE provides decision-making aid for sustainable product development with customized tools (e.g. life-cycle based eco-design tools based on GaBi Envision).
Display environmental performance of construction materials with a quantitative analysis.
Analysis provides information basis for sustainability certification of buildings.
Adding the created LCA datasets to the recognized LCA database Ökobau.dat.
Improve your internal and external environmental communication with reliable information, e.g. supporting marketing activities and communication with stakeholder.
EPD are suited as evidence for environmental requests in case of public procurement.
GaBi Software is the universal Life Cycle Assessment tool. Ökobau.dat is the German construction material LCA database used for DGNB certificates. This database contains over 650 datasets of materials, construction and transport processes. Ökobau.dat is recommended and published by the German Ministry for Transport, Building and Urban Development.
