A practical workshop for manufacturers.
Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) are now the common currency for evaluating the environmental impacts of construction products.
This workshop is intended to give those considering the development of Environmental Product Declarations a practical insight into developing an EPD. It will bring together those who have already started on the journey, with those considering starting development of EPD. IGBC is currently developing an EPD programme for Ireland called EPD Ireland. The workshop will give an insight into their role in specification, including LEED, BREEAM and Green public procurement. This practical workshop is restricted to a limited number of manufacturers and producers to provide peer to peer learning and experience sharing to enable them to start on the road to developing EPD.
