Environmental Product Declarations
Global leaders in PCR creation and EPD Certification
Communicate a product’s environmental impact throughout its life cycle to end-users, architects, designers, procurement professionals, and consultants across the globe.
EPD Process Verification
Managed by EnvironDec, the International EPD System is the most recognized global program for Type III Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) in accordance with ISO 14025, ISO 14040/14044, and EN 15804. Epsten Group is one of only six ISO 17065 accredited companies that can certify your internal EPD process to earn Type III EPD verification for your products.
Does EPD Process Certification make sense for my organization?
In our experience, companies that conduct Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs), which are input into five (5) or more EPDs, would find EPD Process Certification a more cost-effective approach.
How does the EPD process certification work?
Epsten Group will assess your organization’s internal LCA and EPD process against the GPI process to verify that your organization’s life cycle assessment processes and procedures follow those outlined by EnvironDec. Upon completion of the Certification Assessment, your organization will be able to use the EG EPD logo on your EPD documentation to demonstrate a Type III EPD. Every year, Epsten Group will assess your process to maintain certification. EPDs for products that are conducted under an EPD Process certification are also eligible to be published on the International EPD System website.
EPD Process Certification means your product will count as one (1) whole product under the LEED v4 and one and a half (1.5) products under the LEED v4.1 Materials and Resources Building Product Disclosure and Optimization – Environmental Product Declarations credits as an externally reviewed Product-specific Type III EPD.
