Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) provide verification of a product’s environmental impact throughout a building’s lifecycle.

These are also an important factor in making sure there is transparency of the environmental footprint of products and, is accepted as contributing to green building certification.

The points system for EPDs is broken down into three different types

1

Product-specific declaration

2

Industry-wide (generic) EPDs

3

Product-specific Type III EPDs

The value of Type III EPDs

The green building points value increases for each of the levels with the product-specific Type III EPDs, independently verified, non-biased reports, the most valuable. Green building standard revisions, such as LEED v4.1, makes product-specific Type III EPDs even more valuable.

Jotun has probably the most extensive list of product specific Type III EPDs – which are the most valuable in terms of earning green building points – in the industrial coatings market. We have third party verified our life cycle analysis data from cradle to gate as the minimum defined scope accepted by the major green building standards.
