Quantifying sustainability using EPD and contributing to sustainable buildings using certified materials/products

That consist in voluntary programs that provide quantified environmental data of a product, under pre-set categories of parameters set by a qualified third party and based on life cycle assessment, and verified by that or another qualified third party.
