EPD – Environmental Product Declaration

EPD - Environmental Product Declaration

Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are technical documents that demonstrate the environmental impacts of a product or a service following the ISO 14025 Type III Environmental Declarations and the guidelines laid down by EPD Operator and Product Category . The preparation of an EPD is based on the ISO 14010‑44 Life Cycle Assessment standard and serves as the labelling system to identify the environmental impacts of the relevant product or service. EPDs are prepared with the information provided by the manufacturer and cover information about the manufacturer, the product and its environmental impacts. EPDs can be prepared by different product groups and are globally accepted. Metsims Sustainability Consulting is behind over 300 EPDs worldwide.

EPDs can be also prepared for different sectors, and the construction materials industry is one of the leading industries in terms of acquiring EPDs.

More than 60% of the EPD documents published by Turkish companies are signed by Metsims.

Our market share in the construction sector in Turkey exceeds 70%.

The ‘Sustainable Building’ has growing interest worldwide thanks to the BREEAM, LEED, and DGNB green building certification systems. It is possible to acquire additional points during the certification process if a product used in the construction has an EPD. Additionally, EPDs give you a competitive edge against the alternative or competitors’ products by providing environmental profile including carbon footprint, energy use and resource efficiency.

We work with the following institutions below to help you acquire EPDs:

Metsims Sustainability Consulting is internationally recognised for its experience and competence on EPDs.

Dr. Hüdai Kara, the founder, and managing director of Metsims is the approved EPD verifier for the International EPD System, EPD Russia, EPD India and ZAG EPD of Slovenia.

Dr. Hüdai Kara is also the Chairman of the Technical Committee of the International EPD System since January 2022 and has been serving as a member since 2012.

Having served as a member of the Technical Committee before 2022, Dr. Hüdai Kara was elected as the chairman in January 2022.

What are the stages of EPD project?

1

Data Collection

During the data collection process, the data template that we at Metsims prepared is used to acquire all the related information about the product to perform LCA analysis. Metsims provides the support you need to collect the data.

2

Modelling and Calculation

Once the product and production related data is collected, Metsims develop an LCA model using SimaPro LCA software and calculate environmental indicators in compliance ISO 14040/44 compliance.

3

Reporting and EPD Preparation

The results analysed and benchmarking is made with similar product for further assurance and LCA report is prepared. The EPD document is prepared based on the LCA report following the ISO 14025 standards, GPI and relevant PCR. EPDs by Metsims are professionally designed and known for their look and marketing appeal.

4

Verification

LCA report and EPD is then verified by an independent approved verifier. Metsims manages this process for its clients. After successful verification, verifier report is obtained.

5

Publication

All verified EPDs are finally published by the International EPD System.
