What is an environmental declaration?

An environmental statement is a mapping of the environmental profile of a product or equipment. This mapping is obtained by analyzing the entire life cycle (extraction of raw materials, manufacturing, distribution, installation, use, end of life). It is valid for 5 years and can be consulted at any time on the INIES database.

Different types of environmental declarations exist:

  • PEP ecopassport® type declarations, specific to electrical, electronic and HVAC products. These environmental statements are framed by the Product Category Rules (PCR) ed.3 of the PEP ecopassport® Program, the XPC-08-100-1 standard and the PSR (Product Specific Rules). Website of the PEP ecopassport® Program: www.pep-ecopassport.org
  • FDES type declarations (Environmental and Sanitary Declaration Forms), specific to construction products. These environmental declarations are framed by standard NF EN 15804 + A1 as well as its national complement NF EN 15804 / CN. Website of the FDES Program: https://www.inies.fr/home/ 
  • EDP ​​System® type declarations, open to all types of products or services. These environmental declarations are framed by the ISO 14025 and NF EN 15804 + A1 standards. Website of the International EPD® System: https://www.environdec.com/
Our accompaniment

We can train you to carry out your environmental declarations or realize them for you.

We will first define the project framework (product (s) studied, functional unit, borders). Then, after collecting all the data needed to carry out the environmental analysis: mass, material, process of transformation, upstream transport of the raw materials ... we will model the product (s) in the software of ACV EIME to calculate environmental impacts. Finally, we will write the accompanying reports and the environmental declaration.
