Spacer Bar Maker Publishes EPDs; Launches Sustainability Strategy

Swisspacer recently published Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for its spacer bars and Georgian bar. The company also created a sustainability road map for achieving its goal to reach climate neutrality.

EPDs which meet the requirements of ISO 14025 are independently verified. They provide transparent and comparable information on the environmental impact of products over their entire life cycle. Manufacturers of construction products issue EPDs to provide planners, architects and developers with reliable support and the data they need to obtain a sustainability certificate for a building, such as those in accordance with DGNB, Breeam or LEED.

“Our philosophy is to make transparent and verified data available to our customers. Th at is also evident in our previously published studies on energy saving and living comfort,” says Victoria Renz-Kiefel, managing director of Swisspacer. “We are highly committed to achieving this ambition and are using the EPDs as the starting point for our sustainability strategy.”
