EPDs for MEP products
As a key industry for the energy transition and thus with massive responsibility towards future generations, building services possess a major lever for the sustainable development of the building sector. Taking this into account, building services design experts wish to use products that conserve resources and save CO2*. Sustainability thus becomes a permanent factor in all decisions about whether to opt for one system or another.
This can only be done with reliable data that is prepared in an understandable way and is easy to work with. This is exactly what you get from us in the form of our intuitive calculation tools and verified Environmental Product Declarations, abbreviated to EPDs.
*CO2 or CO2e?
The abbreviation CO2 is often used as a substitute for greenhouse gases.
Strictly speaking, it would be more correct to use the term CO2 equivalence or the abbreviation CO2e, which we use below.
Good reasons to work with sustainability data
Selecting air conditioning products based on sustainable considerations is no longer just an illusion. It is about tangible benefits for the environment, for future generations, but also for everyone involved in projects.
Changing the Game
Life Cycle Assessment data for construction products is important when it comes to the sustainable certification of buildings. This is because more and more construction projects are using only building materials the environmental impact of which can be proved. This trend will also continue to advance in building services. Qualitative product data will thus become a selection criterion for building services designers and builders.
Our reliable sustainability documentation makes it easier for them to work with the certification process, and ensures that they collect valuable points for the sought-after building certificate.
But sustainable building services and construction sectors mean more than just bureaucracy. It is nothing less than a game-changer when building services design experts select products based on their environmental impact, as well as performance and price. Efficiency, resource-conserving materials, short transport routes and extensive recycling are becoming relevant design parameters. Sounds obvious? Get on board!
