How is an EPD created?

An EPD is created in five stages:  

  1. Data is collected, including raw material, resource consumption and waste data for each product.  
  2. A lifecycle assessment is conducted. 
  3. Background information is collected for the report, giving details about the methodology used for the assessment, any assumptions made and the standards that have been adhered to.  
  4. Third-party verification is carried out by an independent verifier, to ensure impartiality, reliability and accuracy. 
  5. The EPD is published into the public domain.
