Environmental Product Declaration
The UK cement industry is building on its long established sustainability credentials having published its first Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a standardized way of quantifying the embodied environmental impacts of a product or system over its lifetime.
The information declared includes data on the environmental impacts of raw materials acquisition, energy use and efficiency, content of materials and chemical substances, emissions to air, soil and water and waste generation.
