Welcome to the first conference organized by the International EPD® System, The International EPD® System – Your partner for environmental communication, which will be held on 15 May, 9am-5pm, at the Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre.
The conference is aimed at all stakeholders in the system, particularly companies that develop environmental declarations, EPD®s, and organisational members worldwide. The program will include the new General Programme Instructions that are currently being drawn up, good examples of both international and small and medium sized companies working on environmental declarations, and guidelines on how an EPD® can be used in marketing and communications.
The all-day conference is free of charge and funded by the International EPD® System.
We are excited to welcome companies and organizations who develop or would like to develop environmental and climate declarations. Last year 60 new EPDs were registered by companies from all over the world, so our system is growing firmly, says Joakim Thornéus of the Secretariat of the International EPD® System.
The International EPD® System was established in Sweden in 1998 and has grown to include companies and organizations in dozens of countries in almost every continent. It is the only international framework for environmental declarations based on ISO14025. The system offers a complete program to develop and communicate a product's environmental and climate performance, based on life cycle assessments and environmental declarations.
