Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for UK manufactured construction products

At the start of 2022, there were over 450 manufacturer specific EPD covering a wide range of construction products, from over 80 manufacturers and 12 UK Trade Association EPD. This was an increase from the 360 EPD from over 60 manufacturers and UK trade associations at the start of 2021. These, together with International Trade Association EPD which cover UK manufacturing, are listed in the tables below.

Table 1 shows EPD for UK produced products, including information on product type, EPD owner, number of EPD and EPD programme. The hyperlinked text links through to the relevant EPD programme search page. These tables were previously provided by ConstructionLCA and hosted on the website of the Alliance for Sustainable Construction. The intention is to update the table every quarter.

Also shown are UK Trade Association EPD (Table 2), European Trade Association EPD (Table 3), International Trade Association EPD (Table 4) and finally, some European trade associations have produced template EPD (Table 5) – these are ‘worst case’ EPD which can be used by any of their members to show the impact of their products.

Note that EPD Ireland also provides a listing of EPD for products produced in Ireland or relevant to the Irish market.
