Standardised EPDs

Environmental product declarations (EPDs) help you communicate the results of your sustainability analyses to your company, consumers or other audiences. SimaPro offers powerful reporting functionality to streamline the creation of your EPDs.

Providing the desired level of detail

The challenge in communicating the results from your sustainability assessments is providing your audience with the level of detail they can use. The EPD method in SimaPro is a robust and user-friendly tool that enables you to do your studies in a timely and efficient way and keep up with the latest developments.

It is also regularly updated with the latest data for all life cycle stages.

Facilitating clear communication

SimaPro is used by many companies and consultants to create EPDs. Its EPD method is based on an environdec publication and helps you calculate impact categories for standard EPDs. With the combination of a parameterised model and SimaPro Report Maker, it doesn’t take much effort to generate multiple EPDs.

Since SimaPro is a highly transparent software tool, you’ll be able to use it to easily substantiate your environmental product statements and answer questions from customers and stakeholder groups. Included in SimaPro is the ecoinvent database, which gives you access to a wealth of transparent and well-documented background data.

"At Steelcase, we have been using SimaPro since we started to perform LCAs, about ten years ago. We use SimaPro both to support our eco-design strategy and to create our Environmental Products Declarations (EPDs). Especially both its robustness, its flexibility and the support provided by the developer, PRé Sustainability, are the reasons why SimaPro is the best option for us. We have never been disappointed."
