The EPD Registry™ is a new online database of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). EPDs are documents that help green building professionals better understand the environmental impact of building products.
Similar to how nutrition labels summarize the nutritional value of a product, an EPD summarizes the environmental impact of a product such as its potential contribution to global warming, smog or acidification. This type of data is increasingly beneficial to architects, green building professionals, federal agencies and others who specify or purchase products based on environmental attributes.
“Until now, there has been no central repository of EPDs. The EPD Registry fills this important information gap in the market”, says Eda Clausen, Principal at Eco Health Data™ and publisher of The EPD Registry. “Searchable by product name, manufacturer or MasterFormat® Number, The EPD Registry eases the EPD search process for design and construction professionals while providing manufacturers with a central database in which to list building products that feature an accompanying EPD.” The database is especially valuable for those seeking building products that can contribute to LEED® certification and other green building programs such as Green Globes®.
There is no fee to search The EPD Registry. Each listing features a product description, product image, a link to the EPD as well as manufacturer contact information. For more information, visit http://www.theepdregistry.com
