Examples of EPDs
Use of ECO EPD logotype
ECO Platform is a cooperation between European program operators in order to harmonize environmental declarations in the construction sector.
The International EPD® System is an approved programme to use the ECO EPD logotype on its EPDs for construction products compliant with EN 15804. This is a voluntary option during EPD registration.
Who may use the ECO Platfrom logotype?
Programmes for environmental declarations that are members of the ECO Platform, and have passed their audit procedure may assign the ECO EPD logotype to be used on published EPDs.
The International EPD® System is a founding member of the ECO Platform, and was one of the first programmes to pass the audit in late 2014. Using the ECO EPD logotype in the EPD is a voluntary option during EPD registration for EPDs of construction products made in compliance with the standard EN 15804.
What are the advantages of including the ECO EPD logotype?
The ECO EPD logotype is a way to show a common quality of the verification procedure of the programme that have accepted the EPD for registration and publication. It is one step in the way of reducing perceived missing harmonization of EPD programmes in Europe.
As a member of the ECO Platform, the International EPD® System recognizes that EPDs that carry the ECO Platform logotype fulfill the same quality of the verification process as EPDs in the International EPD® System.
