Our Environmental Product Declaration Certificates (EPD)

By | | No Comments

Interface is the first carpet tile manufacturer in Europe to receive a third party verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD). This recognises our commitment to openness and to presenting the environmental performance data that our customers need to make truly informed decisions.

STUDYING A PRODUCT’S FULL LIFE CYCLE

EPDs follow a rigorous process in accordance with agreed industry standards. In addition to sharing what is typically confidential product information, we carried out a thorough life cycle assessment (LCA) for our products, in line with ISO 14040 standards. This covers everything from raw material extraction through to disposal or recycling at the end of the product’s useful life.

GUT, who represent the carpet industry on environmental matters in Europe, developed a standard LCA methodology to be used on EPDs across the carpet industry in Europe.

The Institute for the Built Environment (IBU), together with industry associations for the flooring sector, has developed Product Category Rules (PCR) outlining the information needed for a ‘Floor Coverings’ EPD. IBU acts as the third party verifier and for both the LCA and the process and ensures the EPD follows IBU’s standardised scheme.
