EPD Australasia

EPD Australasia

EPD Australasia 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.

EPD Australasia 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 EPD Australasia are independently verified to ISO 14025, a relevant Product Category Rule (PCR) and the Programme’s General Programme Instructions (GPIs). All EPDs for building and construction products are also independently verified to the best practice standard EN 15804.

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

All EPDs include a verified embodied carbon footprint. EPDs for building and construction products are also a fast track for achieving carbon neutral certification under the Australian Government’s Climate Active Carbon Neutral Certification.

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 and transparency. EPDs are used to quantify and communicate the environmental credentials of an organisation’s product or services to business customers and consumers.

EPDs are popular for construction-based products and 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 are also be developed for almost any product and in Australasia we have EPDs for tissue-based products, fabrics and even a train! Internationally EPDs have been published for waste management services, packaging, food and beverages, solar and wind farms and much more.

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.

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.

Procurement professionals and building design teams are increasingly conversant in what EPDs are and how they can be used in decision making. They are more frequently being used as a means of quick and easy route to choose between different products and services, to achieve corporate and project objectives and better sustainability outcomes.
