Environmental product declarations for compliance your stakeholders can trust

Credibility and transparency are crucial for your brand reputation, especially now customers are becoming increasingly savvy to unsubstantiated ‘green’ claims. By creating environmental product declarations (EPD) for your product, you can comply with the accepted industry standards and communicate objectively about your environmental performance.

Environmental Product Declarations


Effective environmental reporting without greenwashing

Environmental product declarations are standardised communication tools for objective communication and product comparison. Because EPDs are made according to a transparent standard and verified by an external expert, they can help you comply with regulations and avoid greenwashing. Both aspects are increasingly important to customers. 


Trustworthy and transparent

With an environmental product declaration, you can communicate all relevant environmental information along a product's value or supply chain. You can also use these environmental reports to reflect on your continuous improvement, to select the best eco-design options and to be in compliance with laws around high-volume consumer products in certain countries. It is anticipated that mandatory environmental product declarations will become commonplace in other EU countries as well, which is good reason to start developing EPDs for your products today.


Product benchmarking and compliance with reliable standards

Comparing the environmental performance of different products in a way that makes sense is not as easy as it seems it should be. Environmental product declarations solve this problem: they all use a common methodology defined in ISO 14024 and the same product category rules (PCRs), so you can compare the environmental reports of different products. Because EPDs are always verified by an external expert, they provide trust and transparency for your manufacturers and procurement professionals.
