EPDs allow providers to showcase their low-carbon materials and EPDs stand out in a crowded marketplace by demonstrating their commitment to sustainability. They help designers make data-driven decisions and receive credit from such rating programs as LEED, BREEAM, DGNB, and the Living Building Challenge. There’s a lot of value in staying ahead of the curve as the design industry shifts in this positive direction.
