Clearing the Air Around Environmental Product Declarations

June 9, 2022
Environmental product declarations are practical tools to help design practitioners make informed specifying decisions, but they're complicated. Here's how to break them down.

Most architects and interior designers would agree that environmental product declarations (EPDs) are anything but simplistic. While they are valuable tools in these professionals’ hands, EPDs are complex and require in-depth knowledge to apply them to product specification. In this episode, we sit down with Jane Rohde with JSR Associates to help simplify the process of using EPDs in sustainable design projects.

This episode was created in partnership with the Resilient Floorcovering Institute.
