NRMCA Verifies EPDs of New Mexico Ready Mix Producer
With environmental transparency criteria being discovered in LEED building construction documents and specifications, material suppliers are investing into disclosure reports, specifically environmental product declarations (EPD). As a leading Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) Program Operator for the concrete industry, NRMCA recently verified an EPD by Albuquerque, NM-based Duke City Redi-Mix. The EPD was developed by Athena Sustainable Materials Institute and verified by Sustainable Solutions Corporation. The EPD reports the impacts for 30 different ready mixed concrete products produced at Duke's Albuquerque and Los Lunas, NM, plants. Duke City is the first concrete producer in the market area to achieve EPD verification.
To date, the North American ready mixed concrete industry, including material suppliers, have verified almost 60 EPDs with more than 18,000 products/mixes and is the leading material industry that reports environmental impacts. NRMCA-verified EPDs can be found here.
Integral to the Build With Strength campaign, NRMCA promotes Strength Through Transparency for member and industry competitiveness in the green building marketplace and the trends toward product and company transparency.
