On 10 December, Construction Products Europe (CPE) held a workshop to discuss the current situation of Environmental Product Declarations (EDPs). The event brought together over 60 experts in the field of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and environmental assessment of buildings/products.
Panellist Lisa Wastiels (BBRI) explained the end-of-life approaches used in the European standard EN15804 and the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF). Dieter De Lathauwer from the Belgian government and Carolin Spirinckx (VITO) presented the draft CEN/TC350 technical report on new indicators for EPDs. Finally, Jane Anderson (thinkstep) gave some examples on how benchmarking is applied to construction products. The PowerPoint presentations are available on the CPE website.
