Environmental Product Declarations (EPD's)
Environmental product declaration
At Forbo Flooring we believe an open, honest and transparent approach to demonstrating a sustainable attitude is the only way to show the credits we attribute to our products and processes. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a recognized methodology we use to determine and measure the impact on the environment of any product during its creation, use and what remains when a product reaches its end of life by measuring a set number of impact categories. The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is the outcome of the LCA, which is published in a 3rd party verified report on a particular product. The EPD for Marmoleum verifies our claims and gives transparent insights into our test results and measurements. With our EPDs we decided to go further than the standard in the market. Our EPDs also include a transparent declaration of the impact on human health and eco-toxicity.
