NRMCA Verifies EPD for O&G Industries

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA recently verified a system level Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) program for O&G Industries. The EPD was developed in consultation with and based on a software tool by Climate Earth. The software tool integrates life cycle analysis impacts within batch operating software to generate EPDs when desired. The software, underlying life cycle data for each plant and EPD was reviewed and verified by Sustainable Solutions Corporation, a verifier in NRMCA’s EPD program.

Four plants were included in the O&G Industries' verification project, including Bridgeport, Danbury and Stamford in Connecticut and Brewster, NY. Public access to this latest EPD verification is available on the NRMCA EPD website and is listed as: NRMCAEPD: 20044 - O&G Industries; this directory of EPDs report the impacts of ready mixed concrete from three plants in CT and one in NY.

The trend in reporting environmental, social and governance practices is growing and, with environmental impact criteria being specified in green building construction documents and proposed in state and local legislation, procurement decisions are expanding beyond price and performance. To date, the North American ready mixed concrete industry, including material suppliers, have invested into 85 verified EPDs with more than 35,000 products/mixes and is a leading materials industry that reports environmental impacts.

As part of 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.
