During the CILCA 2015 conference in Lima, Peru, the International EPD® System and its partners announced the most recent expansion of its network: the EPD Latin America Hub.
The regional partners will provide local support and promote the use of EPDs in the region, starting in Mexico and Chile. The hub will also be responsible for registration of EPDs into the International EPD® System library at www.environdec.com for companies in these two countries.
The interest for EPDs is growing globally, and we are very happy to find regional partners in Latin America who can ensure that the emerging interest there is aligned with what is occuring internationally, says Joakim Thornéus, programme manager of the International EPD® System.
The Latin America Hub is the latest in a group of regional hubs of the International EPD® System, which is now covering the Czech Republic (CENDEC), Turkey (EPD Turkey), New Zealand and Australia (Australasian EPD Programme). The International Secretariat with offices in Sweden and a helpdesk in China are responsible for all other countries.
Companies, LCA consultants, certification bodies or other stakeholders in Mexico and Chile are welcome to contact the regional hub at email@example.com to learn more about the opportunities for them with EPDs.
