EPDs: An Inside Look at the Keys to Successful Implementation

As today's building owners increasingly endeavor to build greener buildings, members of the design team seek proven and verified product labels. This has led to the recent development of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) – a standardized label designed to communicate the environmental impacts of a product in a scientifically sound, streamlined and comparable way. At the International Concrete Sustainability Conference, Chris Erickson, president and CEO of Climate Earth, a provider of systems, data and services for sustainable management, and Jeff Davis, vice president and general manager, Central Concrete, will take an inside look at how Central Concrete became the first ready-mix supplier in the U.S. to adopt and receive external verification of its EPDs.

Life Cycle Assessment

Ryan Henkensiefken, business development engineer at Central Concrete, will moderate a technical session on Life Cycle Assessment. The topics to be addressed are: Comparative Analysis of the Life-Cycle Impact Assessment of Cement Mortar Mixes Using the Green Concrete LCA Tool presented by Arpad Horvath, University of California Berkeley; An Approach for Analyzing Cost and Energy Performance Trade-offs in Residential Building Wall Systems presented by Jeremy Gregory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and 10 Questions LCA Can Answer about Concrete Buildings presented by Frances Yang, Arup.
