Surface Tech announced today it is in the process of taking a major step forward in its commitment to sustainability — obtaining Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) on all of its products.
EPDs are independently verified and registered documents that communicate transparent and comparable information of the lifecycle environmental impact of products. EPDs are defined as a type III environmental declaration that is compliant with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14025 Standard.
EPDs enable planners, architects, owners, general contractors, developers and engineers to make smart decisions when choosing materials for construction projects. Project planners can also use EPD information to contribute to credits in LEED® and other green building certifications.
Submitting its products to the rigorous review required to obtain an EPD is a testimony not only to a commitment to sustainability in general, but also to the confidence the company places in its products to deliver on its promise to build a sustainable future.
