Environmental Product Declarations

Based on the Eco-profiles, PlasticsEurope also provides Type III Environmental Declarations according to ISO 14025, commonly called Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). The EPD programme is governed by the following:

The PlasticsEurope Methodology Document (see sidebar) also includes the Product Category Rules (PCR) which define how to calculate EPDs from the Eco-profile datasets. Given the more recent nature of the EPD programme, EPDs are available for many polymers, but not yet for all. Where no EPD is available yet, the Eco-profile report includes figures on Global Warming Potential (Carbon Footprint). All updated Eco-profiles comprise the EPD as an introductory section.
