EPD issued for Pisko roof safety products

We have been awarded an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for our powder coated roofing products. This is a significant step forward in our industry, as Piristeel’s EPD is the first of its kind in Finland in this product category.

The EPD enables us to present the environmental impact of our powder-coated roof safety products in a transparent and open way. The EPD covers steelmade, powder-coated ladder products, snow guards and roof walkways together with their fixing systems.

What is EPD?

EPD, or Environmental Product Declaration, is an official document that provides transparent and objective information on the environmental impact of a product throughout its life cycle. Based on international standards, the EPD provides comparable information on the environmental impact of different products, helping consumers and businesses to make informed choices. The EPD includes information on the raw material sourcing, manufacturing and use as well as recycling and waste management, etc.

EPDs are used to assess the climate impact of buildings, compare products and communicate their environmental impact, and can play a key role in the choice of products for construction projects.

”Our EPD is a response to customers’ growing needs to assess the environmental impact of roof safety products. We can now better communicate the competitive carbon footprint of this product group in a transparent and verified way. At the same time, both our customers and we ourselves can better understand where the emissions from our products originate and what the share of total emissions is in different life cycle stages,” says Markus Tupala, Technology Manager at Piristeel.


Forerunner in roof safety

We are a forerunner in our field and we want to do it in a way that respects the environment. The EPD is part of our wider commitment to developing environmentally friendly practices and products. Environmental responsibility has always been important to us and we have worked hard to find new ways to reduce the environmental impact of our operations.

The Environmental Product Declaration is a step towards more transparent and responsible construction. We are proud to be able to offer our customers products whose environmental impact is already well understood, thus supporting sustainable development in the construction sector and differentiating ourselves from our competitors. We will continue to work towards a carbon neutral future for construction.

During the spring, we will also add the EPD in Swedish to our website and to the One Click LCA tool used to calculate the carbon footprint of buildings.
