NSF's product transparency reporting verify environmental product declaration (EPD) and develops product category rule (PCR) and life cycle assessments (LCAs).
EPDs offer a standardized way of communicating a product’s environmental impact throughout its entire life cycle, to help customers decide among similar products.
Our third-party verification proves that EPD data was collected in line with the applicable product category rule (PCR) and meets all ISO 14025 requirements. Verification allows you to:
We guide industries, trade organizations and companies in developing PCRs through an ISO 14025-compliant process.
PCRs allow reviewing and comparing environmental product attributes of different products in a defined category. PCRs help you differentiate your products in the marketplace and respond to increasing demands for more sustainable products and more transparent environmental claims.
An LCA is a transparent analysis of the environmental impacts of a product, system or service, including raw material acquisition, production, use and end of life. By identifying the critical impact categories, you can reduce environmental impacts where they are most beneficial and cost effective. ISO 14040-based LCAs can be used to meet green building rating system requirements such as LEED v4 and Green Globes.
NSF can conduct critical reviews of your LCA.
