CPA is pleased to announce the publication of environmental product declarations (EPDs) for particleboard, medium density fiberboard (MDF) and hardboard made in North America. The EPDs were verified by UL Environment and signify conformance with Type III environmental declaration set in ISO 14025.
EPDs sponsored by UL are recognized by US Green Building Council’s LEED rating system, Green Building Initiative’s Green Globes and other green building certification programs.
Based on ISO standards 14025 and 21930, EPDs have worldwide applicability and include information about product environmental impacts. These include use of resources, global warming potential, emissions to air, soil and water, and waste generation.
Accompanying the EPDs are Transparency Briefs that summarize each product’s most critical lifecycle-based environmental impact information.
