Internationally agreed environmental indicators, such as the acidification -, ozone depletion and global warming potential are calculated using a detailed life cycle assessment. All data are thereby determined by independent experts and verified in multiple test methods. Thus an EPD of the IBU acquired maximum credibility and acceptance within the construction industry, as well as the Federal Association of consumer initiative Berlin on its Internet site confirmed. The comprehensive description of all relevant product data within the EPD makes it possible to evaluate construction products individually for each case.
