Johnstone’s Trade receives BRE Global EPD verification certificate

What is EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) verification?

  • standardised way of assessing the full environmental impact of a product through its lifespan from raw materials and manufacturing to application, use and disposal
  • EPDs are independently tested to strict standards to ensure the underlying data, data handling and EPD itself are consistently reliable
  • credibility of an EPD which meets EN 15804 enables specifiers and architects to specify products in keeping with environmental standards set by BREEAM and LEED

Johnstone’s verified EN 15804 EPD allows architects to accurately compare competing materials from an environmental perspective and enables contractors and building owners to comply with government rules.

Helen Tiplady, specification marketing manager at Johnstone’s Trade: ñUnquestionably, we are in the midst of a movement towards the design and construction of the most sustainable buildings the UK has ever seen. The Government’s insistence that all publicly procured buildings must be BIM compliant by 2016 has been a significant driving force behind this. At Johnstone’s, we have never been more confident that our range provides architects and specifiers with products that will help them meet such sustainable targets.î

David Richardson, group director sustainable products at BRE: ñSustainability is something which we take very seriously so it’s great to see Johnstone’s Trade’s continued commitment to the environment. We have awarded EPD certification for three Johnstone’s products now and look forward to many more in the coming months. We can all play our part in reducing the impact of the industry on the environment for a more sustainable future.î
