AGC Inc. has received an Environment Product Declaration (EPD) for architectural float glass manufactured at its plant in Kashima, Japan.

Company officials say the announcement marks a significant milestone as the first EPD obtained by AGC for domestically manufactured and sold architectural glass in Japan. AGC has also received EPDs for architectural glass manufactured by two of its Asia-based companies.

EPDs disclose environmental impacts from raw material procurement to production. They are verified and certified by the Sustainable Management Promotion Organization. EPD-certified materials meet the requirements of building regulations mandated by some countries and contribute to the acquisition of green building certifications, such as LEED.
