Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) and Declare labels tell us how a product was manufactured, what materials they contain, and where the materials came from. The process is third-party verified, and the label details the chemical makeup of a product, life expectancy, and lists any materials that could harm our health or pollute the environment. Think of it as a nutrition label for a product.
For more than a decade, we’ve been committed to a goal of net zero greenhouse gas across operations and zero waste to landfill by 2035. Since 2016 we’re deepening that commitment through our Design for Environment (DfE) program by carefully considering the full life cycle impacts of our products and processes. In 2020, we completed over 4 times more DfE projects than in 2019 and saw more DfE projects completed in 2020 alone than in all previous years combined since DfE work began in 2016.
