This session will present the fundamentals of EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations ); how they are constructed and the key items to look out for to ensure you are using a credible EPD. There will also be a walk-through of existing EPDs that are listed on GreenBookLive and an appreciation of how EPD can be used to improve specification and ultimately help support better decision making at the building or construction asset level.
This is a recorded webinar.
