EPDs: What they are, how to create them, and why they’re critical for manufacturing
Tuesday, March 12th – 10.00am GMT
With 25% of all UK carbon emissions directly attributed to the built environment (UKGBC), and ambitious goals in place to drastically achieve a reduction in emissions, the pressure is on for construction and manufacturing organisations to be more transparent about their carbon impact.
The need for manufacturers to measure and report on the carbon impact of their construction products and materials is now critical, as clients, contractors, regulators and designers hone in on suppliers who can showcase the embodied carbon within their offerings, and why they are the best choice for current and future construction projects.
Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are quickly gaining traction as they become the vital tool in the wheelhouse for sustainability-focused manufacturers.
Hosted by Verity Moorhouse from One Click LCA and Dea Dalipi from specialist construction firm, JRL Group, this virtual discussion will focus on the what, why, when and how of EPDs. You will hear about:
- How JRL Group is using EPDs to respond to internal and external pressures for transparency across the portfolio.
- How EPDs are making the process of aligning to standards and regulations simpler and more effective.
- Why EPDs are critical for the future of sustainable manufacturing and business success.
