NRMCA Urges Participation in Webinar to Discuss Renewing Industry Wide EPDs
Due to market drivers (i.e., Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) in green building standards, most notably LEED V4) NRMCA published version 1.0 of the Industry-Wide EPD (IW-EPD) in 2014. Seventy companies representing over 2,300 plants participated. Afterward, market EPD activity grew NRMCA-member pressure to amend the original IW-EPD to include additional companies and plants. So in 2016, NRMCA launched IW-EPD v2 report which included a revised total of 88 companies and 2,519 plants. With NRMCA members responding to LEED v4 projects, among other initiatives of product disclosure, NRMCA will now develop a third version of the IW-EPD in 2019. Please join NRMCA as we discuss renewing our industry-wide EPD and why your participation is needed.
The Webinar will be held on Thursday, January 17, from 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern time. Click here to register for Industry-Wide Environmental Product Declaration (IW-EPD) version 3 Project.
