Description

The overall goal of an Environmental Product Declaration, EPD, is to provide relevant, verified and comparable information about the environmental impact from goods and services.  The International EPD system is: offering a complete programme for any interested organisation in any country to develop and communicate EPDs according to ISO 14025, and; supporting other environmental declaration programmes (i.e. national, sectorial etc.) in seeking cooperation and harmonisation and helping organisations to broaden the use of their environmental declarations on an international market.  The international EPD®system is a member of the Global Type III Environmental Product Declarations Network (GEDnet) and cooperate to achieve the GEDnet objectives.  (Type III: a program involving a declaration that provides quantified environmental life cycle product information provided by the supplier, based on independent verification, and systematic data presented as a set of categories of a parameter.)
