An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the lifecycle environmental impact of a product.
Both the cement and concrete sectors have fully embraced regionally-specific industry-wide average Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) as a way of quantifying and confirming industry improvements in carbon reduction. All cement facilities in Canada have also published facility-specific EPDs and an increasing number of concrete producers have as well.
