What is EPD Verification?

EPD verification is an external, third-party validation process that ensures your Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) aligns seamlessly with international standards such as ISO 14025, General Programme Instructions (GPI), product category rules (PCR), and other relevant benchmarks. Once your EPD successfully passes this rigorous verification, it becomes eligible for publication and practical use.

Why Pursue EPD Verification?

For your environmental product declaration to see the light of day, it must undergo an external verification process to meet the stringent criteria set by ISO 14025, GPI, PCR, and other essential standards. This verification is your gateway to showcasing your commitment to sustainability, transparency, and adherence to globally recognized environmental guidelines.

Benefits of EPD Verification

  1. Enhanced Credibility and Trust: Verified EPDs are seen as more credible and trustworthy by consumers, clients, and stakeholders. The verification process ensures that the data and claims made in the EPD are accurate and reliable.

  2. Market Differentiation and Competitive Advantage: Having a verified EPD can set a product apart in the market, especially among environmentally conscious consumers and businesses. It can serve as a key differentiator in competitive industries.

  3. Improved Environmental Performance: The process of obtaining an EPD typically involves a detailed analysis of the product’s life cycle. This can help identify opportunities for environmental improvements, such as reducing energy use, minimizing waste, or using more sustainable materials.

  4. Compliance with Regulations and Standards: In some regions and industries, EPDs are becoming a requirement, especially for public procurement. Verification ensures compliance with these requirements and with international standards.

  5. Facilitates Green Building Certification: EPDs are often used in green building rating systems like LEED or BREEAM. Verified EPDs can contribute points towards a building’s certification, making them valuable for products used in the construction industry.

  6. Supports Sustainable Supply Chain Management: EPDs can play a critical role in sustainable supply chain management, providing transparent information about the environmental impact of products. This is increasingly important for businesses committed to sustainability across their supply chains.

  7. Data-Driven Decision Making: Verified EPDs provide reliable data that businesses can use to make informed decisions about product development, manufacturing processes, and strategic planning.

  8. Enhanced Stakeholder Engagement: A verified EPD demonstrates a commitment to transparency and environmental responsibility, which can strengthen relationships with stakeholders, including customers, investors, and regulators.

  9. Access to New Markets: Some markets, particularly in Europe and increasingly in North America and Asia, favor products with verified environmental credentials. An EPD can open doors to these markets.

  10. Long-term Cost Savings: The process of EPD verification can lead to the identification of efficiencies and cost-saving opportunities in product design, manufacturing, and logistics.
