Carbon accounting, environmental product declarations and tools

As of 2021, there are a limited number of plant specific EPDs in Canada for either cement or concrete production. There are, however, industry average EPDs available for Cement, Ready-Mixed Concrete, and Precast Concrete through the links provided below.

The CAC is in the process of working with the National Research Council of Canada to develop higher resolution data sets for Canadian cement and concrete. We expect this work to accelerate the introduction of mix specific EPDs starting next year (2022).

In addition, there are several tools and programs available or under development for calculating facility specific concrete EPDs. A list of pertinent resources is outlined below:
