The ECO Platform’s objective is to support the provision of reliable information in the form of a European-wide accepted Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) in order to remove potential barriers to trade and to reduce the effort required for the construction industry to develop EPDs.
The ECO Platform was established between EPD programme operators, European trade associations, green building councils or green building rating schemes owners and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) practitioners. It is articulated in three working groups (WG), dealing with different topics: WG I for technical issues, content, format and technical background of core-EPD; WG II for quality management and common quality system, and WG III for internal and external affairs communication with the industry and European Commission.
Cerame-Unie is proud to be a founding member of the ECO Platform. The next General Assembly will be held in Brussels on 10 June 2014.
