Roper Rhodes Achieves EPD for Isocore Bath Panels
We at Roper Rhodes are thrilled to share our latest stride towards sustainability - receiving an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for our innovative Meridian Isocore Bath Panels.
Environmental Product Declarations are crucial in today’s eco-conscious world. They provide a transparent, standardized report detailing a product's environmental impact across its entire lifecycle - from raw material extraction through to its end-of-life. Our EPD for the Meridian Isocore Bath Panels was developed following rigorous Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology, covering impact categories like CO2 emissions and more. This not only aligns with the increasing demand for sustainable products but also sets new industry benchmarks for environmental responsibility.
The UK's ambitious goal to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050 has made it imperative for all construction-related products to have credible, verifiable EPDs. This is where we step in. Our Isocore Bath Panels not only meet this requirement but also offer architects, housebuilders, and specifiers a product that is both high-quality and environmentally friendly.
