Ecore International, a company that transforms reclaimed waste into unique performance surfaces that make people’s lives better, recently demonstrated its commitment to sustainability by issuing Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for twelve products.
An EPD is a verified document that reports environmental data of products based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and other information in accordance with the international standard ISO 14025. Ecore’s EPDs were prepared by SCS Global Services and based on the NSF International Product Category Rule (PCR) for Flooring: Carpet, Resilient, Laminate, Ceramic, and Wood. Several Ecore products have gone through the rigorous EPD process, which includes a comprehensive life cycle assessment.
Ecore has conducted EPDs for Forest rx, Terrain rx, UltraTile®, ECOmax, Performance, ECOrx, ECOfit, PlayGuard, Everlast Basic Rolls & Tiles, ECOsurfaces, QT, and ECOsilence.
Following completion, Ecore’s EPDs were externally verified by FFK LTD as conforming to the requirements of ISO 14025:2006 and ISO 21930:2007. This verification meets LEEDv4 requirements. Ecore considers these Environmental Product Declarations a useful tool in providing transparent, comparable, and authenticated information with regards to environmental performance of its products.
