The Environmental Protection Declaration (EPD) has been extended to all cements produced in Italy
The Environmental Protection Declaration (EPD) measures the sustainability of a product with objective and verifiable data during its entire lifecycle. As early as 2003, Buzzi Unicem obtained EPD certification for its cement produced at Vernasca, the first cement plant in Italy to receive this important recognition.
After a preliminary experimental phase, the lifecycle study was extended to all 54 cements produced by the group’s plants in Italy. The results of the study were published in the Buzzi Unicem Italy cement EPD, certified by ICMQ (certificate 12009EPD) on June 14, 2012.
The certification guarantees the excellent environmental performance of our products and, as such, the sustainable design of structures built with Buzzi Unicem cements (infrastructure, buildings, etc.).
