Environmental Product Declaration

EPD & Life Cycle Assessment

Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for our chipboards, esb boards and life cycle assessment for our natural wood board VITA

As a member of the Association of the German Wood-Based Board Industry (VHI), our chipboards and esb boards are provided with an EPD. The VHI works together with the Institute for Building and Environment (IBU) for sustainable building. The VHI and its members have drawn up Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for the various product groups in the form of an Association EPD.

What is an EPD?

An EPD is a multi-page document that describes the environmental impacts of building products based on a life cycle assessment with quantitative data. It is used for the sustainability assessment of buildings. It is prepared by the manufacturer and checked at the IBU by independent verifiers on the basis of the ISO 14025 and EN 15804 standards and then published. An EPD serves to provide transparency about the environmental impacts of products to the public.
