About the conference

The 8th EPD International Stakeholder Conference is expected to gather EPD stakeholders from industry, academia and other sectors for a chance to learn about the latest developments in the world of Environmental Product Declarations. Due to COVID-19 we can unfortunately not meet-up in Slovenia this year as planned, but when the situation allows, Knauf Insulation and the International EPD System will welcome you in Slovenia in 2021, instead.

The theme of the event is “Access for all - the world needs credible, digital and harmonized environmental performance data”.

The topics of the event will be:

  • Credible data: A strong EPD brand and third-party verified environmental performance data are key when decisions require a life cycle perspective.
  • Digital solutions: The product-specific information in an EPD is increasingly used when calculating the environmental performance of various items.
  • Harmonisation on all levels: Finding acceptance of EPDs by working on global standardisation with public and private actors.

We are very much looking forward to e-connecting with you on November 10 during one of our two identical online Annual Stakeholder Conferences.
