Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are a standardised way of providing data about the environmental impacts of a product through the product life cycle. In Europe, they must conform to the European Standard, EN 15804, which ensures that EPDs for construction products use a common methodology, report a common set of environmental indicators and have a common reporting format. This means that EPDs can be integrated into building level assessment, and used to compare construction products in a building context.
