Environmental Product Declarations at Griesser
- Nachhaltigkeit EPD
We believe in sustainability
We advocate for sustainable development throughout our value-added chain and are always aware of our eco-nomic, ecological, and social responsibility to future generations.
Environmental certificates are essential to sustainable architecture, providing a basis for engaging with ap-proaches to lower-impact, eco-friendlier construction. Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are a reliable source of information for architects, developers, and owners who believe in sustainable construction.
An EPD describes building materials, products, and components in terms of their environmental impact, based on ecological life-cycle assessments and functional and technical properties. This quantitative, objective and verified information relates to the entire life-cycle of a construction product, making EPDs an important basis for the sustainability assessment of buildings.
Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU) focuses on exactly that. Before a product can be certified, IBU evaluates every aspect of it. Material cycles must be absolutely transparent before the sought-after EPD is issued.
Griesser holds EPDs for all its external venetian blinds and sliding shutters made of aluminum and wood.
