Godfrey Hirst: Environmental Product Declaration from Cradle to Grave
Godfrey Hirst, leading Australian carpet manufacturer, requires robust environmental credentials.
Edge Environment was commissioned to conduct a cradle to grave life cycle assessment (LCA) study of the carpet tile product range.
Edge Environment worked closely with Godfrey Hirst to identify the company’s product life cycle environmental hotspots, strengths and weaknesses against competing products, and to develop rigorous scientific evidence for marketing and educational material.
EPDs are an internationally accepted and standardised way for manufacturers to report quantified environmental impacts of their products. EPDs are developed in-line with well-established international standards to ensure rigour and transparent procedures and reporting are followed.
