A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), and its market-facing communication document, the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), can help building products manufacturers increase revenues, strengthen brands, gain operational efficiencies, and mitigate risk.

This presentation will make the business case for developing an EPD, explain LEEDv4 MR credits, and demystify complexities of the underlying LCA. Attendees will learn, task by task, how an LCA is conducted and what resources would be necessary to bring an EPD to fruition. Options will be presented for developing EPDs cooperatively at the industry-wide level using consulting services, or independently at the manufacturer-specific level using software.

Vik Ahuja is a Sr. Account Executive with thinkstep, the global leader in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) consulting, LCA software development, and Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) databases. He is a sustainability expert with nearly 2 decades of experience in guiding clients toward their sustainability goals.
