Eco Platform is the association for European EPD Programme Operators using EN 15804. The Eco Platform website has just had a revamp, coinciding with the launch of their digital EPD Eco Portal, where you can search for digital EPD by product type and country. The EPD use the InData format, a harmonised way of providing EPD data which follows the International Life Cycle Database (ILCD) format, with extra fields relevant to EPD (known as ILCD+EPD!). The next step will be providing API so that tools can link directly with the database.
So far only some of the EPD Programme members have included their digital EPD, and not all of their EPD are available digitally, but it is a great step forward, and Eco Platform programme operators have agreed to add all their new EPD to the Portal in future, so this will become a growing resource. For the time being, ECO EPD as pdfs are still available at the original Eco Platform EPD Registry.
I’m also pleased to see as part of the revamp, the archive of Eco Platform Newsletters are now all available. I’ve been pleased to contribute to a number of them, for example:
05/2020: Article on the ways EPD are being used in Regulation
Q4 2019: Article on the use of EPD in Green Procurement
Q2 2019: Article on the value of EPD
Happy reading and EPD searching!
