Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a document that informs about the product’s environmental impact throughout its life cycle, from creation till its disposal. EPD provides measurable information about the material composition of the product, about the consumption of raw materials and energy in various stages of the product life cycle (product or service) and about the level of contribution (emission production) to the acidification of soil and water, water eutrophication, ozone depletion, the greenhouse effect and creating photochemical oxidants. The client receives objective information about the basic (technical) product characteristics, while also about the environmental performance of products, which allows the client to take into account the environmental aspects of the product while deciding which product to choose.

Only EPD verified by independent third party, for example by our certification body for the EPD, is possible to publish and to use for communication between the producer and the customer – B2C communication.

Independently verified EPD is designed for all producers regardless of their focus and size who want to present the environmental performance of their of products (B2C).

Independently verified EPD is a useful tool for all producers who want to reduce the environmental impacts of their production, to optimize their manufacturing processes and products, and to present the environmental aspects of the product to the customers. Through independently verified EPD producers increase their competitiveness and get new market opportunities.

EPD verification is a process where an independent organization (third party) verifies in place that the producer in accordance with the requirements of CSN EN ISO 14025 and other management documents processed EPD for his / their products.

EPD verification allows the producer to publish and present the EPD document. Producer thereby increases its value and prestige on the market and become a credible partner. Submission of independently verified EPD is conditional for cooperation with many institutions abroad, but also public authorities and local governments, for supply of works, goods or services.
