Give your input into our new Product Category Rules (PCR) for Thermal Insulation Products!

The Global GreenTag EPD Program is looking for your input into the development of Product Category Rules (PCR) for thermal insulation products (PCR THI:2023 - Thermal Insulation), developed in collaboration with Evah Institute, and inviting you to comment.

Consumers and business customers alike look for reliable, quantitative data on the environmental burden of products, to assist them with making purchase decisions that account for such burdens. Their decision-making is supported by initiatives like Global GreenTag's Environmental Product Declaration™ (GreenTag EPD™) program.

The GreenTag EPD is a user-friendly representation of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) results. To guarantee that GreenTag EPDs provide reliable and comparable information, every EPD is underpinned by relevant Product Category Rules (PCR). PCR is defined in ISO 14025 as a set of specific rules, requirements, and guidelines for developing environmental declarations for one or more products that can fulfill equivalent functions. PCRs determine what information should be included, how that information should be evaluated, and how it should be presented in an environmental product declaration form.

Critically, input into the development of PCRs by manufacturers is highly valued, as it allows assessors to tailor PCRs for the conforming LCAs of products to reflect typical material sourcing, adopted manufacturing processes and common use phase issues, and for EPDs to represent all meaningful information about products in an accessible way.

We invite all Stakeholders to participate in this public consultation for PCR Thermal Insulation Products. Review of this public consultation closes on 09/01/2023. The PCR Thermal Insulation Products draft for can be downloaded HERE.
