Operational Tips: Using EPDs to Inform Decisions and Modernize Operations
Emerald Eco-Label, NAPA’s verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) tool, makes it easy to quantify the environmental impact of an asphalt mix. Created by industry professionals and stakeholders and evaluated by sustainability experts, the Emerald Eco-Label EPD tool was developed in conformance with ISO 14025, ISO 21930, and the Product Category Rules (PCR) for Asphalt Mixtures. These standards establish the principles and procedures for developing a Type III environmental declaration program and prescribe specific rules for asphalt mixture EPDs.
For Green Asphalt, the choice to participate in the program was an easy one, as creating EPDs aligns with their corporate sustainability goals, helped them understand their environmental record, and through publishing ensured they were accountable to their overall mission.Download this Resource
