Hot on the heels of the recent BRE Global Environmental profile and A+ rating certificate, Cembrit has been awarded Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for its range of fibre cement roofing and cladding products.
Designed to allow decision makers to compare the relative environmental impacts of alternative building products, Cembrit are proud to be amongst the leaders to add the transparency of EPDs to their impressive list of accreditations. Valid for 3 years, the declaration complies with ISO 14025 and follows a life cycle assessment by the European Institute for Construction and Environment. It is an independently audited open-book with an abundance of documentation on the product, its life-cycle, ecological footprint and emissions.
“Cembrit’s aim is to provide the best value for money roofing and cladding products. Independent accreditations contribute to this aim by providing extra benefits to choosers and users” says Ged Ferris, Marketing Manager of Cembrit. “We are delighted to have been awarded with the EPD certificates in addition to the BRE Global A/A+ rating on our fibre cement slates. These developments set us apart from other roofing and cladding manufacturers. We are a company which values openness and environmental awareness with the aim of giving customers real information with which to make an informed choice about the products they plan to use.”
