ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCT DECLARATION (EPD)
Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for ZinCo Green Roof Systems
The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) has been created as an instrument which reliably shows the environmental impact of construction products throughout their complete life cycle and describes their functional and technical properties.
Transparent environmental information has always been of major relevance to ZinCo. For that reason ZinCo has created an EPD for the Green Roof System “Heather with Lavender” which has now been verified and published. It is a so-called “Core EPD”. The life cycle assessment data of most extensive or intensive ZinCo Green Roof Systems can be provided by means of its tested and verified annex.
The internationally recognized EPDs form an essential cornerstone of the building certification systems of e.g. DGNB, BREEAM or LEED. They allow for comparisons of products or services with the same function and provide an important basis for the sustainability assessment of buildings.
