Abstract

The increasing awareness on climate issues in the built environment places a greater
responsibility on the different actors to map the building emissions, reduce and optimise the use
of materials, and thereby lower the environmental footprint. With several countries enforcing
legally binding CO2 limits to assess and benchmark the negative environmental side effects from
buildings using the LCA method, it is presumable that practitioners from the industry will look
for higher availability of data found from Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). As the
availability of data more than likely will increase drastically over the years, the study provides
an extensive look into the world of digitalised EPDs, and how to use the format to extract a
comprehensive number of EPD data. The extraction of data from the ECO Platform leads to a
total of 1478 entities, and when adding EPDs from EPD Denmark this study scrutinises 1644
EPDs in total, from 4 EPD Program Operators (EPD-POs). The extraction process highlights the
need for transparency and more mutual agreements in the documentation methods. Further, the
study scratches the surface of the revised European EPD Standard EN15804, and what the
changes and the transition will mean for the applicability and transparency in the building sector
and for LCA models when the majority of emissions from GWP will increase.
