What is an Environmental Product Declaration?

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent, comparable data and other relevant information about the life-cycle environmental impact of a product in accordance with ISO 14025. 

Multiple datasets are included in an EPD: resource consumption of energy, water and renewable resources, and emissions to air, water and soil. This data is aggregated using multiple environmental impacts including contributions to climate change (carbon footprint), resource depletion, and air, water and soil pollution.
