Sloan, the manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems, has published an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), Health Product Declaration (HPD) and Declare label for many of its commercial restroom products. The independent, third-party verifications help architects, designers and engineers meet sustainability goals.
“As the envelope for green design is pushing further, leading designers demand EPD, HPD and Declare labels as the standard for specified products,” said Patrick Boyle, director of corporate sustainability at Sloan. “Our goal is to provide our customers with complete transparency starting with some of our top-selling products to assist them in making more informed design decisions.”
Sloan worked with third-party organizations to publish a full disclosure of material toxins and environmental impacts. Commercial restroom products with EPD, HPD and Declare labels are eligible for LEED v4 points, specifically MR credit for Building Product Disclosure and Optimization for Material Ingredients, as well as International Living Future's Living Building Challenge Petals.
“EPD, HPD and Declare labels align with our goals of minimizing the footprint of water and creating a healthier environment for occupants. This is the next evolution in sustainable design because the standards recognize the entire product life cycle,” added Boyle.
