Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs)
Point Advisory can help to develop Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for your products or services. We are experienced in data collection for life cycle inventories, life cycle assessment (LCA) modelling, reporting and delivery EPDs. To register an EPD (Type III), a peer-review process (using an external reviewer) is required to satisfy ISO 14025. We can help you through this process.
EPDs offer businesses and consumers’ the ability to easily understand the environmental performance of products or services on a level playing field against other like products. The EPD framework sets clear boundaries of what is included and excluded in product or service’s life cycle so that results are transparent and easily traceable. EPD data provides confidence for accurate sustainability reporting, benchmarking industry averages and communication into marketing material.
EPDs have been extremely successful with industries including building and construction, agricultural, packaging, furniture and other consumer goods. Indeed, companies are seeing an increasing customer demand for EPDs, particularly within the European market.
Registered EPDs (Type III) from Australian and New Zealand can be viewed through the Australasian EPD Programme website.
