EPD for Addagrip Resin Bound products
Addagrip Terraco Ltd is delighted to announce that its range of Resin Bound surfacing systems has achieved an Environmental Product Declaration from BRE Global.
Addaset, Addabound, Terrabound and Terrabase Resin Bound porous surfacing systems have been awarded a Statement of Verification in accordance with the requirements of EN 15804:2012+A1:2013 and BRE Global Scheme Document SD207.
BRE Global is internationally recognised for its expertise in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and the achievement of this verification will assist in providing reassurance that the Addagrip Resin Bound systems have been independently tested and evaluated in accordance with the BRE''s rigorous verification process and have achieved an industry recognised mark of quality.
What is an EPD?
By collecting a large sum of data such as raw materials, packaging, transport and energy, BRE were able to calculate the environmental impact 1m2 of our Resin Bound surfacing systems have from Cradle to Gate. All this information is then published in an EPD. This EPD can be used by architects, engineers, designers etc for the Mat01 ‘Building Life Cycle Assessment’ credit of BREEAM 2018 and would also be used as evidence to contribute to the Mat 02 EPD credit.
What is BREEAM?
BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for masterplanning projects, infrastructure and buildings. It recognises and reflects the value in higher performing assets across the built environment lifecycle, from new construction to in-use and refurbishment.
BREEAM does this through third party certification of the assessment of an asset’s environmental, social and economic sustainability performance, using standards developed by BRE. This means BREEAM rated developments are more sustainable environments that enhance the well-being of the people who live and work in them, help protect natural resources and make for more attractive property investments.
