DEKODUR receives the updated environmental product declarations (EPD)
DEKODUR receives from Mr Ralf Olsen, Secretary General of the ICDLI (the International Committee of Decorative Laminates Industry aisbl) the certificates for the updated Environmental Product Declarations. The certifications apply to HPL and HPL compact and are valid for 5 years. With the environmental product declaration issued by the inde-pendent program holder Institute for Building and Environment e.V. (IBU), DEKODUR increases the product transparency of HPL.
Environmental product declarations are considered proof of the environmental performance of construction products and provide a basis for ecological building assessment. The statistical averages are based on the highest EU standards and provide an overview of the performance characteristics of HPL in terms of life cycle assessment. All the necessary information, including on the effects on the greenhouse effect, on the depletion of the ozone layer and the primary energy demand, are included at a glance.
The new Environmental Product Declaration provides quantitative, verified and objective information on the environmental impact of a product, using clearly defined parameters. The entire life cycle of the product (extraction of raw materials, production, transport, use, disposal) is considered.
"We are excited about the current Environmental Product Declaration, which gives us a clear label of our HPL sustainable building products," explains Christopher André, Managing Director of DEKODUR GmbH & Co. KG
