Breaking down barriers to EPD – Top tips from architects and lessons learned from product manufacturers

Date: Wednesday 8th December 2021 Timings: 13:00 - 14:30

Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) provide ‘environmental information about a product in a standardised format using a consistent methodology’. Demand for EPD is growing and there are now over 7000 construction product EPD worldwide.

We believe that Environmental Product Declarations have a major role to play in enabling better product choices and delivering lower carbon buildings. However, we recognise that they are complex documents and there are barriers to their uptake.

Over the last 2 years we have held a number of online training events and published a series of briefing papers on EPD, led by life cycle analysis expert and ASBP board member Jane Anderson (ConstructionLCA). This event will build upon previous webinars with insights from both architects and product manufacturers.
