NAPA comments on EPA’s low carbon construction material labeling program

On March 18, NAPA officially submitted its comments to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the agency’s Label Program for Low Embodied Carbon Construction Materials.

“In the draft approach for the label program, EPA proposes to standardize and improve the quality of data used in Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), which disclose key environmental impacts of a product’s lifecycle,” according to the EPA website. “It also proposes a process to use data from EPDs and other sources to set thresholds for the amount of embodied carbon a product can have related to similar products to qualify for the label. The final phase of the draft approach is for the program to certify materials and products and to create a central registry of certified products.”
