Filmop International update EPD using Italian standard UNI 11698

Filmop International update EPD using Italian standard UNI 11698

Filmop International has published an updated version of their EPD for cleaning trolley. In the update, the company has chosen to use the Italian standard UNI 11698:2017* to calculate and display uncertainty values arising from life cycle inventory data on the indicators as presented in the EPD. The standard provides requirements and guidelines for the estimation, reporting and use of the uncertainty of LCA.

Information about the draft standard was presented at the EPD International Stakeholder Conference in Milan 2016, but this is the first known case where it has been applied for an EPD in the International EPD® System after the publication of the standard in 2017.

“EPDs are all about being transparent of the environmental impact of products and of how the results are calculated.  I look forward to seeing how this Italian standard is used in practice to enable further and better use of LCA and EPD in different applications,” says Kristian Jelse, Programme manager of the International EPD® System.

The results and the EPD were verified by RINA Services S.p.A.
