Using EPD in public procurement

A registered environmental declaration, e.g. by the International EPD® System, proves that certain environmental standards are fulfilled. In public procurement it’s possible to ask for goods and services to have this information. However, any procurement criteria need to be in line with the information that can be provided by a certified environmental declaration.

Don’t ask for a certain type of environmental declaration for a product or service, such as an EPD®. EU procurement legislation demands that criteria for any type of product or service must be verifiable by any type of environmental declaration. In other words ask for a certain feature or content rather than a labelling or brand.
