EPDs - Environmental Impact Of Concrete Cladding
1 Jul 2019
British Precast Architectural and Structural have published a third EPD, detailing the environmental impact of 1m2 of brick-faced precast concrete cladding from cradle-to-grave. All British Precast EPDs are verified to EN15804 by Europe’s largest verification body Institut Bauen und Umwelt (IBU).
With climate change top of the scientific and public agendas, British Precast is committed to declaring the impact of precast products and working with members to lower their carbon footprint. One of the key indicators of an EPD is global warming potential. By declaring the impact of precast products, the construction industry can better understand the embodied carbon impact of buildings and take steps to reach the goal of a net zero sector.
The British Precast EPDs are available for download from the IBU website and can be found on the British Precast website too: https://www.britishprecast.org/Sustainability/EPDs.aspx
