What is an EPD

The Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) is a globally registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information through a complete mapping of a product’s environmental footprint.

EPD (also called Type III Environmental Declaration according to ISO Standard) is developed in accordance with the international standard ISO 14025 and taking into account the rules of homogeneous product category rules (PCR). Read more on: EPD Development Steps

This standardized, consistent and documented environmental declaration ( the EPD information ) enables a company’s prospective customers to check whether the environmental attributes ( characteristics )  of the products or services meet their expectations.

The EPD information enables the comparison of a product’s green credentials against competing products by looking at various lifecycle stages. 

This data is aggregated and compiled through various environmental impacts to climate change (carbon footprint), resource depletion, air, water and soil pollution.

All EPDs that are registered on the International EPD® System , through EPD Egypt, become publicly communicated and internationally recognized for their global market alignment.

To develop an EPD, the company acquires an independent third-party consultant for its LCA process and a certified EPD verifier. Read more on: EPD Development Steps
