NRMCA Certifies CalPortland EPD

As the leading Environmental Product Declaration (EPD program operator for the concrete industry, NRMCA recently published an EPD for Producer member CalPortland Company. The EPD covers 90 products (30 concrete mixes from three plants) owned and operated by CalPortland in Washington State. The life-cycle assessment (LCA) report and EPD was developed by Athena Sustainable Materials Institute and verified by Climate Earth. To date, NRMCA has verified nine company EPDs with a total of 2,111 products from 39 different plants, by far the largest total of any building product category.

Established in 2012, NRMCA’s EPD Program aims to help concrete producers and concrete product suppliers, including cement manufacturers, meet new requirements in green building rating systems such as LEED v4 and other standards, including the International Green Construction Code (IgCC) and the Architecture 2030 Challenge for Products. NRMCA was one of the first industry groups to publish an industry wide EPD and industry benchmarks.
