Until now, we have not had a reliable or efficient way to compare these emissions utilizing the data contained in an EPD. The open-source Embodied Carbon in Construction Calculator (EC3) tool simplifies this complex problem, giving users the information they need to make more informed decisions on embodied carbon, allowing them to enact positive change. Details on the EC3 tool will be made available November 2019. Collaborating partners will be demonstrating the product at Greenbuild, November 19-22, 2019 at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA.
Kingspan Insulated Panels North America created the first-of-its-kind cradle-to-grave UL Certified ISO compliant EPD in September of 2011. Since that time, Kingspan has issued multiple revisions to our certifications, documenting our journey of continuous improvement.
Kingspan is devoted to the future of our planet, and this planet-passionate attitude permeates every product we release. We are very proud of our QuadCore EPD, as well as the myriad of other certifications our products carry.
QuadCore’s other third-party certifications include GREENGUARD Gold and a Silver Level Material Health Certificate, earned through the rigorous Cradle to Cradle assessment. In addition, QuadCore is Red List Free, so it can contribute to credits in health and wellness certifications, such as WELL, the Living Building Challenge, LEED v4 and BREEAM.
