A special EPD logotype has been developed to ensure a well-known identity of the International EPD® System to be used on all official printed materials and declarations connected to the system. This is a way of avoiding confusion with other types of product-related environmental labels and declarations.
Use of the logotype
The EPD® logotype can be used in connection with e.g. advertisement, on products and their packaging materials. It is also possible to add more explanatory supplementary information if needed. The EPD® logotype can be used in many ways for different market applications, for example:
- On the declarations - the logotype with no additional information
- On products and packaging materials - logotype together with the given registration number and the address to the website (www.environdec.com) for more information.
- On all types of information materials - if a company/organisation wants to use selected information from the EPD for various purposes they shall indicate that the data is taken from an EPD, use the logotype together with the given registration number, and the address to the website (www.environdec.com) for more information.
- Supplementary information - if the company/organisation would like to include information about any of its management systems, either being a quality or environmental management system (e.g. ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or EMAS), or other systems related to e.g. Supply Chain Management, Social Responsibility, ILO Conventions, Occupational Health and Safety, as long as they can be verified.
PLEASE NOTE that The EPD® logotype is only allowed to be used within the framework of the International EPD® System or based on special agreements with the programme operator.
The EPD® logotype is available in the following formats:
The logotypes are also available in other file formats. Please contact the secretariat.
