In April 2014, IGP was the first powder coating manufacturer to present internationally-recognized environmental product declarations, and we continue to do so today. These EPDs in accordance with ISO-type-III are based on the standards ISO 14025 and ISO 14040ff and the European standard DIN EN 15804.
Our EPDs are reviewed by independent institutes (e.g., Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. – German Institute for Construction and Environment in Berlin). They give you transparent and quantified information concerning the environmental impact of the declared products throughout their life cycle. This provides assurance for you that these powder coatings are sustainable and produced responsibly.
Besides the information with regard to the manufacturing, application, and product performance, a product-related impact assessment (LCIA) defines concrete environmental impacts. In accordance with the life-cycle-assessment method, all product-related energy and substance use as well as the specific IGP manufacturing processes are taken into consideration for the EPDs of IGP Pulvertechnik AG.
