Sustainability

Recent years have shown growing concern for the environment, and in particular an increased demand for sustainable building and development. For the construction industry this means a need for accurate information about the environmental impact of the building materials and products that they use. The most reliable way to present this information has proven to be the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approach. This approach investigates the processes involved in the manufacture, use and disposal of a product or a system – from cradle to grave.

On July 22th, 2011, EUMEPS presented a set of Environmental Product Declarations for Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation boards. These declarations help to increase the transparency of communication on environmental properties of construction and insulation products.
For further information on the environmental impact of EPS and the EPS life cycle assessment, please see the brochure section.
