Creating EPDs for Construction Products: A Carbon negative Case study

Joint webinar by

Creating EPDs for Construction Products: A Carbon negative Case study

Highlight: EPD

Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are essential for enabling Architects, designers, and specifiers to make informed decisions on material selection in order to transparently measure and minimise the impacts of our buildings.  The responsibility of EPD creation is largely reliant on construction product manufacturers, and thus, this webinar is aimed at giving a comprehensive understanding of EPD’s to manufacturers as well as hearing first hand the experience of O.C.O in producing an EPD for their carbon negative Aggregate.

In this 60 minutes webinar, we’ll discuss:

  • Why do we need EPDs?
  • The Fundamentals of EPDs
  • How are EPDs used in choosing Product Suppliers?
  • How can EPDs be created cost efficiently?
  • O.C.Os Journey – creating an EPD for their Carbon negative Aggregate.
