Manufacturer Tobermore can accurately demonstrate the environmental impact of over 400 paving, walling and kerb products.

The move follows a rigorous Life Cycle Assessment by the firm. 

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a document that lays out the environmental performance of a construction product over time.

EPDs allow architects to compare the environmental impact of different products and make informed decisions about which to specify for a project.

Having an EPD for the products used in a construction project earns credits towards sustainability assessments such as BREEAM and LEED.

Tobermore EPDs are valid until 2027 and are based on ISO standards (ISO 14025 and EN 15804+A2).

The company says it will be using the data from its EPD assessments to reduce the impact of its products and deliver ever-more sustainable options for the industry.
