Skanska Group in the Czech Republic and Slovakia
What is the sense of Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for the manufacturer? EPD contributes to greater transparency of what is happening in construction industry. For us as a manufacturer detailed data gathered during the assessment enable us to better assess not only the impact and effects of our products on the environment, but also the input costs. Thanks to this we can more effectively focus on those resources whose prices will rise in the future e.g. due to higher energy prices, when reducing the input costs. One certificate for the first building is not as important as a lot of data that will be comparable. Therefore, we will use the EDP and consistently collect data on all of our projects. The outputs of products assessment process will then be an important basis for the preparation of other contracts. The one who will know in time what he is offering or what he could be offering has an advantage for sure.
