The EPA announced several opportunities to provide input on the embodied carbon related programs in the Inflation Reduction Act this morning including:
- RFI due May 1, 2023
- 3 Public Engagement Webinars (March 2, March 22, April 19)
These are related to these two programs in the IRA:
- $250 million for Environmental Product Declarations Assistance (SEC. 60112), to support the development and standardization of EPDs for construction materials with grants and technical assistance to manufacturers.
- $100 million for Low-Embodied Carbon Labeling for Construction Materials (SEC. 60116) to identify and label low-carbon materials and products for federally funded transportation and building projects based on data available via EPDs.
