The impact on the environment is considered by calculating the effect of our products from ‘cradle-to-gate’. This means we account for upstream environmental impact (the raw material resourcing/extraction and their transport to our factory) and the impact of our production.
In order to communicate the environmental profile of Rockfon products we have simplified our Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). You will now be able to find two EPDs; one for our high-density products and a second for our low-density products
By using Rockfon specific EPDs, which are independently verified, our customers can achieve maximum credits in their LEED®, BREEAM® or DGNB® building certification efforts. The transparency and consistency of our EPDs, according to the EN15804 standard, allows our customers to use the results and calculate the building’s life cycle assessment (LCA), which is required to realize elite-level certifications.
