NRMCA Updating Industry-Wide EPD for Concrete in 2016

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA published version 1.0 of the Industry-Wide EPD in 2014. Over 70 companies representing 2,300 plants participated. The Industry-Wide EPD has already been used on several projects. However, many members did not participate in version 1.0 and have indicated they should have. NRMCA will update the NRMCA Industry-Wide EPD for Concrete to give those companies that did not participate in version 1.0 a second opportunity to participate. Version 2.0 will also provide an opportunity to those companies that purchased or sold plants since version 1.0 to provide updated information. Companies that participated in Version 1.0 and have no significant changes to their operations will not need to provide data for Version 2.0 since NRMCA will use the data submitted during Version 1.0.

Why Should Members Participate?
• EPDs are required in LEED v4 and other standards. You can produce product specific EPDs but they are expensive and time consuming. The NRMCA Industry-Wide EPD is free to NRMCA members.
• Companies must provide data to the Industry-Wide EPD in order to use the EPD for submittals.
• Concrete contributes significantly to LEED v4 and EPDs help design teams meet LEED certification criteria.
• By participating in the NRMCA Industry-Wide EPD, you can demonstrate leadership in environmental stewardship. 
• You will position yourself to take advantage of the green building movement.

Important Details
• You must be an NRMCA member at the time of data collection to be listed in the EPD.
• Only those producers that provide data for the Industry-Wide EPD can be listed and be eligible to use the document for a LEED submittal.
• Any data you provide will remain completely confidential.
