Gypsum Association releases revised EPD for glass mat panels
The Gypsum Association (GA) has released a revised and updated environmental product declaration (EPD) for glass mat gypsum panels. Following the standards set in the Association’s product category rules (PCR) for North American gypsum panel products, the EPD provides vital environmental performance information addressing energy consumption, water consumption, global warming, waste, air emissions and other metrics related to production.
The EPD was prepared by the Athena Sustainability Institute and was verified by ASTM.
Steve Meima, LEED Green Assoc., executive director of the Gypsum Association, noted, “The Gypsum Association has an ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship. The development and release of this new ISO 21930 compliant, Type III, cradle-to-shipping gate EPD, demonstrates our member companies’ efforts to transparently report environmental impacts as a means of contributing to sustainable design and construction.”
