Environmental Product Declarations


Medeco's sustainability initiative includes the development of Environmental Product Declarations or EPDs. Simply put, an EPD provides a standardized way of quantifying the environmental impact of a product or system throughout its life cycle. EPDs are independently verified and registered by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)

Having an EPD for a product does not imply that the declared product is environmentally superior to alternatives — it is simply a transparent declaration of the life-cycle environmental impact. Declarations include information on energy use and efficiency to raw material acquisition and waste generation. 

Medeco has implemented many outstanding green solutions from the manufacturing side. Publishing EPDs for many of our products was a natural ‘next step’ in our sustainability initiative. 

The value of developing an EPD ranges from promoting transparency to the public to earning business from customers that are concerned about the environment.  Many of our customers need to match the requirements necessary to obtain green building certification, such as LEED. EPDs contribute to earning points in LEED v4 and offer beneficial third-party validation in our sustainability claims.
