Our EPD document

An Environmental Product Declaration or ‘EPD’ is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable data about the life-cycle environmental impact of a product. They are based on international standards and produced in accordance with ISO 14025 and EN 15604+A2:2019.

EPDs specifically measure things like resource depletion (minerals, metals and fossil fuels), a product's potential to add to acid rain (acidification), algal blooms (eutrophication) and summer smog (photochemical ozone creation).

In the not too distant future EPDs will be part of our regulatory environment via MBIE’s Building for Climate Change which will introduce a requirement for all new build projects to disclose their embodied carbon. Such information will allow consumers to compare like-for-like products, and their supply chains, in order to make more sustainable choices.

EPDs allow fabricators like us to benchmark and track the environmental impact of our products via a trusted methodology. They can also be used as evidence in Homestar, Green Star and Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) rating systems.

Altus is the owner of the Nebulite brand and supplies all aluminium used in our systems and products.
