Buyers are increasingly demanding to know the full extent of a product's environmental impact. From raw material extraction, production and packaging to distribution, end use and disposal, transparency into the impacts of a product at each stage of its lifecycle has become a critical driver of purchases and specifications. Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) certified by UL enable manufacturers to make those disclosures in a credible, streamlined and universally understood manner.
An Environmental Product Declaration is a comprehensive, internationally harmonized report created by a product manufacturer that documents the ways in which a product, throughout its lifecycle, affects the environment. UL certifies that the correct type of information is in the report.
UL-certified EPDs demonstrate a manufacturer's commitment to sustainability while showcasing that manufacturer's willingness to go above and beyond -- all in the name of transparency and clarity. They also help purchasers to better understand a product's sustainable qualities and environmental repercussions. As such, certified EPDs equip manufacturers with a valuable tool for differentiation and empower customers to make more informed purchasing decisions.
