INNOWOOD requires technical content and context for it to produce Type III Environmental Product Declarations.
These new publications comply with the requirements for manufacturer specific EPDs under the Green Building Council of Australia’s Green Star rating system in that they:
- Conform with ISO 14025 and EN 15804;
- Have been verified by an independent third party;
- Have at least a cradle-to-gate scope.
The publications are based on cradle to grave Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), and can also help project teams conduct a Green Star compliant, whole-of-building, whole-of-life LCA to obtain additional points under the Materials category of the current Design & As Built and Interiors rating tools, as well as under the Innovation Challenge category of the legacy Green Star rating tools.
The EPDs are authored by INNOWOOD and Edge Environment, and independently verified by Catalyst Ltd.
