EPD and carbon calculations

Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) are third party verified Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) carried out in accordance with the requirements of BS - EN15804.

Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are standardised documents that provide comprehensive information about the environmental impact of a product. These declarations offer a holistic view of the product's life cycle, including the sourcing of raw materials, manufacturing processes, transportation, and eventual disposal. This transparent and data-rich approach empowers stakeholders in the construction industry to make informed decisions that align with sustainability goals.

Cement

Cauldon plant EPD for CEM I 52.5N. Using the GCCA database we are able to produce carbon calculations for any cements produced at our Cauldon sites. From experience we find that third party verified EPD studies can take up to six months to verify and publish, by using the GCCA database we will be able to provide carbon calculations within a matter of weeks.

Readymix Concrete Products

In an industry first for readymix concrete - London Concrete now has independently verified and product and plant specific EPDs across the capital region. Until recently, EPDs for readymix concrete had only been available as averages for entire regions or product groups. Now, every London Concrete plant will have its own individual product and plant specific EPD.

We continue to support our customers outside of the capital with carbon reporting tools for all readymix concrete solutions produced by our national and regional companies. We have various carbon reporting tools to support customers no matter what stage they are at in understanding the amount of carbon used in their project. We have a independently verified Your Carbon Report for all products in the country. We also have a ECOPact specific carbon calculator tool that you can use in real-time and understand the amount of carbon you will save by using ECOPact in your project. 

We are always available to talk carbon with our customers and our team of technical experts can help you understand the data and processes for building more sustainably.

Concrete Products

We published our original EPD in 2015 and updated them in 2017. Since then we have made good progress in decarbonising our product range which means that due to the time it takes to verify and publish an EPD they could be out of date. We are constantly updating our products and manufacturing processes to reduce embodied carbon, using our PAS 2050:2011 compliant calculator we are able to  provide up to date carbon calculations on request.

 

Asphalt

We have made good progress in decarbonising our product range through the use of low temperature asphalt and by switching to lower carbon fuels. This is an ongoing process.

Using asPECT, the industry standard carbon calculator, we are able to provide carbon calculations on request for products supplied from any of our plants.

Aggregates

We published our original Aggregates EPD in 2018, which were valid for five years, since then we have made good progress in decarbonising our product range which means that due to the time it takes to verify and publish an EPD they are very quickly out of date.

We are constantly updating our products and manufacturing processes to reduce embodied carbon, using our Carbon Trust developed calculator we are able to  provide product & plant specific  A1 -  A4 carbon calculations on request in just a few days.
