To improve the ecological footprint Decospan, introduces Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), sustainable flooring that are a great method of reducing environmental impact. This revolutionary product is now available for Parky, one of the flooring brands from Decospan.
Approved and published by Institut Bauen Umwelt, the flooring EPDs will serve as an excellent baseline to monitor and improve the environmental impact of products and company.
This milestone takes us another step in the right direction toward a more sustainable future.
By working with and respecting the value of wood, a renewable resource, sustainability has always been an integral part of the Decospan DNA. First and foremost, Decospan is FSC (FSC-C095327) and PEFC-certified (PEFC/07-32-60) and is committed to responsible forest management. The company has also evolved across all aspects to maintain that green mindset, as explained here in more detail.
To continue growing in this aspect, we pride ourselves on a thorough approach. An important step to determine the impact of our ecological footprint is to measure it. This is done through an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), creating a baseline to monitor and improve the effect of our products on the environment.
An Environmental Product Declaration is a verified and registered document that provides transparent information about the environmental impact of a particular product. The foundation of an EPD lies in a thorough life cycle assessment (LCA), allowing you to evaluate a product’s environmental performance throughout the course of its lifetime – from raw material to manufacturing, transportation, use and disposal. It’s compliant with the international ISO 14025 and EN 15804+A2 standards.
The future holds promising transformations and innovations – so watch this space as Decospan continues to embrace sustainability for a cleaner, greener world.
