Medeco Awarded Its First Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

August 10th, 2015

 

Medeco has recently been granted an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for the Medeco M3 CLIQ Mortise Cylinder with additional EPDs to follow on other Medeco products.

A significant step in Medeco’s plan to provide sustainable security solutions, an EPD is a standardized way of quantifying the environmental impact of a product or system throughout its life cycle. Declarations include information on energy use and efficiency to raw material acquisition and waste generation.  An EPD is created in accordance with standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

The value of developing an EPD ranges from promoting transparency to the public to earning business from customers that are concerned about the environment.  With many customers seeking green building certifications such as LEED v4, Medeco will continue to stand apart as it acquires EPDs for even more products.
