EPD

Ethicgreen > EPD

EPD – Environment Product Declaration is very important for Amonn in its commitment to environmental sustainability.

The decision to apply for EPD certification, verified by the third-party accredited body DNV GL and supported by the Swedish International EPD System, is endorsement of AMONN’s commitment to the environment, a commitment which involves continuously improving its products and processes by implementing consolidated and internationally recognised standards and verification systems.

What is an EPD exactly?

It is a voluntary declaration that provides environmental data on the life cycle of products in accordance with the international standard ISO 14025. It is an environmental label which clearly and transparently gives the results of an analysis conducted using the LCA – Life Cycle Assessment – method. It is an effective tool for sharing objective and comparable information regarding the environmental performance of products and services and must naturally be verified and validated by an independent body.

The assessment does not include preferability criteria or minimum levels of environmental performance, so EPD International has drawn up Product Category Rules (PCR) which establish the rules and requirements for EDPs of a certain product category. These rules are a fundamental part of ISO 14025, as they enable transparency and comparability between EPDs of the same type of product or service and have international value.

EPD certification is one of the requirements of CAM (Minimum Environmental Criteria) set forth in Italian Ministerial Decree of 11 October 2017.

The efficacy of the CAM was guaranteed by article 18 of Italian Law 221/2015 and, later, by article 34 which sets forth the “Energy and environmental sustainability criteria” of Legislative Decree 50/2016 “Procurement Code” (amended by Legislative Decree 56/2017), which have made their application by all commissioning bodies mandatory.

In Amotherm’s case, the analysis addressed the entire production cycle of intumescent paints, starting from the raw materials and the production of the basic chemical components used in the formula.  Next, the impact caused by the Amonn production cycle was examined, namely the manufacturing of the containers for the end product, the management of production waste, the transportation of the raw materials and distribution through the sales network.
