We are happy to announce the publication of the 1st environmental product declaration (EPD) calculated by Daxner & Merl
Thanks to the good collaboration with our client Scheucher Holzindustrie, who is manufacturing multi-layered parquet flooring, and the program operator Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU) the environmental product declaration could be awarded at the DOMOTEX 2016.
EPD – what for?
The EPD was published under the Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU) program and provides environmental as well as technical information for sustainable construction.
As a result, the environmental indicators presented in the environmental product declaration form the basis for the assessment of building life-cycle impact reduction as well as product disclosure and optimisation for sustainable building certification schemes.
The life cycle assessment (LCA; dt. Ökobilanz) of Admonter products represents the backbone of the environmental indicators declared in the EPD and is compliant with the requirements of ISO 14040 & 14044 as well as EN 15804. Its creation followed the rules of the ISO 14025 for Type III environmental declarations.
