EPD: Environmental Product Declaration

EDP is a study that aims at understanding the environmental impact of a product on the basis of the analysis of the life cycle of the product.

Recognized throughout Europe, EDP is defined according to regulation EN 15804. Similar to FDES, it differs in that it does not take into consideration the health aspects imposed by the integration of the French system on the European standard.

It is basically a declaration whose practical application is defined by ISO 14020 and ISO 14025 regulations.

Acting as an ‘identity card’ for products produced by Novoceram, the declaration is an in-depth analysis of the environmental impact of products, from their extraction as raw materials to the end of their life cycle (“cradle to grave”).

As with FDES, an analysis is carried out at each phase of the life cycle of the product, with the aim of determining the indicators to be taken into consideration to define the EDP.

EDP therefore not only allows being able to evaluate, but also to clearly communicate the environmental performance of products produced by Novoceram according to a well-defined system.
