An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD®) is a verified, registered document that provides quantified data on the life-cycle environmental impact of a product. The data included is standardized in accordance with ISO 14025.
In practical terms, an EPD allows people concerned about the environment to make informed choices about the products they purchase. It discloses the material content of the product, its percentages of recycled and recyclable content, its cradle-to-grave carbon footprint and its relevant certifications. Kohler is pleased to provide Environmental Product Declarations for a growing selection of our products.
The U.S. Green Building Council awards up to 2 LEED points to green building projects that use products with verified EPDs.
