An EPD describes building materials, construction products, or building components in terms of their environmental impact, based on life cycle assessments, as well as on their functional and technical characteristics. This quantitative, objective, and verified information covers the entire life cycle of the building product. EPDs thus constitute an important basis for assessing building sustainability.
Prior to publication by the IBU, EPDs are tested and verified by independent third parties for completeness, plausibility, and conformance to standards. The quantitative information contained in EPDs on the environmental performance of construction products makes them valuable to a wide range of stakeholders: planners, architects, construction companies, investors, facility managers, and, of course, manufacturing and service companies along the entire value chain, from raw materials to finished buildings.
Cobiax is committed to sustainable building design anyway, so this publication is particularly important to us, especially for our new CLS product line.
Especially on the topic of Cobiax and sustainability, you will find quite a bit of information here:
You can download the EPD document (for the time being only in german, an english translation will follow soon):
Or if you would like to talk to us directly about the CLS, its life cycle assessment, its DBIt approval or about the product in general, use one of the many ways to get in touch. We will be happy to advise you.
