The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) will be presenting a free webinar on Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) on March 21, 12:00-1:30 pm EST.
EPDs are third party verified (certified) reports published by product manufacturers that provide quality assured and comparable information regarding environmental performance of their products or service.
With the proliferation of eco-labels and green certifications worldwide, it can be confusing determining a product’s environmental attributes. Well established in other parts of the world, EPDs are starting to appear in the U.S. as the common methodology for assessing the potential environmental performance of a product or process. The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED v4 Rating System and Architecture 2030 for Products are starting the demand for EPDs.
Join NRMCA for an informative 1.5 hour as the webinar offers a brief overview of EPDs, the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) that supports it and the Product Category Rules (PCRs) that sets the ground rules for it. In addition, the webinar will discuss NRMCA’s EPD Program, which enables concrete producers to meet the new requirements for EPDs.
