An environmental product declaration, or EPD, is a document which transparently communicates the environmental performance or impact of any product or material over its lifetime.

Within the construction industry, EPDs support carbon emission reduction by making it possible to compare the impacts of different materials and products in order to select the most sustainable option.

  •     Architects, engineers and designers are able to choose the most sustainable option for their project.
  •     Manufacturers are able to optimize the impact of their products and market their carbon transparency.

An EPD is usually valid for five years, and is generated according to the relevant standards. Construction EPDs are based on the ISO 14040/14044, ISO 14025, EN 15804 or ISO 21930 standards.

EPDs help to achieve EPD and LCA credits in certification schemes, like LEED, BREEAM and others.

There are a growing number of natural stone suppliers who have EPDs for their products. To make it as easy as possible for you to specify natural stone as a sustainable product choice, we have gathered the EPDs provided by Stone Federation on the links below.
