What is an EPD?
An EPD (or Environmental Product Declaration) is a detailed, independently verified document reporting a wide range of the environmental impacts of a product. To create one, a manufacturer or supplier compiles detailed information about the product including:
- Component materials
- The distance those materials travelled to get to the factory
- Energy used in manufacturing
- The average distance the finished product travels to its end use
In addition, they will also use “scenario-based assumptions” to estimate impacts during use and at the end of life to create an assessment that considers impacts across the whole lifecycle of the product.
An EPD lays this information out in a consistent format, making it easy to draw fair comparisons between different products. This ensures that designers and contractors can make informed decisions about the products they specify.

We have grouped products to provide family-level EPDs which cover over 80% of our product range. Because we have such a complex manufacturing and logistics operation, we’ve taken proportional averages across all our ranges and factories to provide a fair reflection of each product’s impact, regardless of the site it was manufactured at.
