NRMCA Verifies Lehigh Cement EPD

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

As a leading Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) program operator for the concrete industry, NRMCA recently verified two EPDs by Associate member Lehigh Cement. The EPDs report the impacts for three different cement products produced at Lehigh’s Delta, BC and Bellingham, WA, facilities. Verified cement products included:

  • General Use Limestone (GUL) or Type IL
  • General Use (GU) or Type I/II
  • High Early (HE) or Type III

The trend in reporting environmental, social and governance practices is growing and, with environmental impact criteria being discovered in green building construction documents and specifications, procurement decisions are leaning beyond price and performance. Increased business opportunities in the future will occur when raw material suppliers demonstrate a lower embodied carbon for their customers.

Lehigh’s EPD was developed by Climate Earth and independently reviewed by Athena Sustainable Materials Institute. To date, the North American ready mixed concrete industry, including material suppliers, has invested into 80 verified EPDs with more than 20,500 products/mixes and is the leading material industry that reports environmental impacts.

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. NRMCA-verified EPDs can be found here.
