The Australasian EPD Programme

Australasian EPD Programme

The Australasian EPD Programme is an independent framework for business in Australia and New Zealand to provide objective, science-based environmental data and other information about their products and services.

The Programme registers and publishes Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Climate Declarations.

EPDs are independently verified and registered documents that communicate transparent and comparable data and other relevant environmental information about the life-cycle environmental impact of products. Read more about the value of EPDs.

All EPDs registered with the Australasian EPD Programme are independently verified to ISO 14025, a relevant Product Category Rule (PCR) and the Programme’s General Programme Instructions (GPIs).

The Australasian EPD Programme is a regional partner of the International EPD® System with over 1,000 EPDs now published from business in 37 countries.

Australasian EPDs are also now a fast track for achieving carbon neutral certification under the Australian National Carbon Offset Standard.

The Value of an EPD

Having an EPD currently shows that your company is an early mover in the market and demonstrates that your company has a genuine commitment to environmental responsibility. EPDs are used to communicate and substantiate the sustainability credentials of a company to business customers and consumers.

The use of products with EPDs is recognised and rewarded in rating schemes such as Green Star (buildings) in Australia and New Zealand and IS (infrastructure) in Australia.

EPDs, and the underpinning Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) are an invaluable tool for companies wishing to identify and address hotspots in the environmental footprint of their products. If your company is ISO 14001 certified the LCA and EPD will greatly assist compliance with the 2017 update to the standard.

Design teams are increasingly conversant in what EPDs are and they are increasingly being used as a means of quick and easy route to choose between different materials and systems to achieve resource and energy efficiency (and cost savings) as well as more sustainable outcomes.

With the release of ISO 20400 the International Standard for Sustainable Procurement Australasian EPDs are increasingly helping business supplying Australian and New Zealand markets with meeting public and private sustainable procurement and tender requirements.
