Verification of Environmental Product Declaration

Do you wish to profile yourself as a sustainable company, distinguish your company from your competitors, and respond to the trend of sustainable entrepreneurship? Vinçotte offers you the solution!

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an internationally recognised format to communicate the environmental impact of a product. An environmental product declaration is the result of a life-cycle analysis that quantifies the environmental impact, from the extraction of raw materials to waste treatment (in other words, from cradle to grave). If an environmental product declaration is used for external communication, it is recommended that it is verified by an independent third party.

The power of environmental product declarations to drive a sustainable economy is also recognised at the European level. The European Commission has developed uniform methods to make environmental product declarations: the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) at the product level and the Organisation Environmental Footprint (OEF) at the organisational level. The environmental product declaration is growing to become the standard for measuring and communicating the environmental impact of products and organisations.

We can ensure the independent verification of your environmental product declaration, enabling you to publish it in an EPD database or communicate it with your customers.

If you have an environmental product declaration:

  • You can develop a solid reputation as a sustainable company
  • You can distinguish yourself from your competitors in a global economy.
  • You can prepare yourself for upcoming laws and the increasingly more stringent requirements relating to environmental performance of products.
  • You can identify the available options to improve the CSR performance of your undertaking.
  • It will be possible for you to consolidate and strengthen your market position by responding to the trend for sustainable procurement.
  • You can communicate about the environmental performance of your products
