RKD has just signed IGBC’s Environmental Product Declarations commitment to enable Ireland to fully decarbonise the construction sector encouraging the use of EPDs.
The international architecture firm has already adopted some of the key points in the commitment and included an EPD clause in their template for RKD’s specifications list, as well as hosted an internal CPD on embodied carbon and EPD’s in February together with ARUP. This will be hosted again in conjunction with this commitment to encourage the staff to ask suppliers for EPD’s and ensure materials with them are specified in future projects.
RKD is joining a great group of commitment signatories: Haines, IPUT, Transport Infrastructure Ireland, Dublin City Council, Meehan Green, Wain Morehead Architects, COADY Architects, Hammersons, BDP and SISK.
