Presentation - Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are quickly becoming an important component for building material requests from architects and specifiers for the construction of sustainable buildings. The ready mixed concrete (RMC) sector has been presented with the idea that EPDs can
be considered equivalent to Nutrition Facts Labels for food products. This presentation was inspired by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website entitled “How to Understand and Use the Nutrition Facts Label,” and we aim to do just that, as facts apply to concrete EPDs. Clear understanding of an EPD facilitates our ability to fully utilize the metrics. It also enables more robust scientific innovations and more sustainable
solutions for concrete users. The net result is a more balanced and more sustainable RMC industry.
