Certifications and EPDs

Product labelling and certification ensures your sustainability performance is communicated in a recognised and reliable format to stakeholders and the market. Best practice labelling and certification follows a robust ISO standardised framework, which includes:

  • Assessing the full life cycle impacts of the product or service 
  • Aligns certification requirements with the product/service’s impact hotspots
  • Backing up claims and information through independent verification or review

Edge helps clients from start to finish to identify the best label or certification based on their target audience(s) and to develop and communicate the label or certification internally and externally for optimal impact.
