Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs)

Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs)

Tobermore has beaten competition to publish Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for their entire product range.  

An EPD is a document that lays out the environmental performance of a construction product over time. Following a rigorous Life Cycle Assessment, Tobermore can accurately demonstrate the environmental impact of over 400 paving, walling and kerb products. 

EPDs allow construction professionals to compare the environmental impact of different products and make informed decisions about which to choose for their project.
