Sloan is transparent about how their products are made through their entire life cycle
What are Environmental Product Declarations?
An EPD is an objective, transparent report that communicates how much a product’s composition impacts the environment across its entire life cycle.
EPDs provide information on a product’s carbon footprint, acidification, depletion of fossil fuel, and recycled content, as well as energy and chemical-free statements.
Why are EPDs important?
An EPD is like a nutrition label for a building product. Instead of identifying impacts like calories and daily recommended allowances, an EPD identifies life cycle impacts like global warming, ozone depletion, water and air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. EPDs are meticulous, third-party examinations that offer holistic evidence of a product’s drive towards sustainability.
How can Sloan products help your project?
To achieve a LEED v4 Materials and Resources credit – EPD for BD+C, a project team must specify 20 different products that have an EPD, each of which are sourced from at least five different manufacturers. For EPD for ID+C, a project team must specify 10 different products sourced from at least three different manufacturers.
Sloan’s EPDs are produced in accordance with international standards and verified by an independent third party to ensure the data we communicate is credible, resulting in full LEED Material and Resource credits for your project.
