This new standard will ensure that comparable environmental information is generated wherever a product is manufactured or used and it is hoped that this core information can be transferred from scheme to scheme across Europe, minimizing barriers to trade.
Although EN 15804 fixes the information that must be provided, it does not imply any particular layout for the EPD, so EPD from different schemes will still probably look very different from each other. However the standard does ensures that all EPD will use the same environmental indicators, which again, currently vary between different schemes and that they will be consistently laid out in tables using the same life cycle modules.
Our webinar “EPD international – environmental communication and beyond” makes you familiar with the advantages and capabilities EPDs are offering. We will present how you can create EPDs according to the European Standard EN 15804 easily and cost-friendly by yourself using our EPD-toolkit.
