Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs)


A corporate commitment
to the environment

Guardian Glass is committed to the efficient use of natural resources while operating in a way that protects the safety, health and well-being of its employees, customers, the environment and society.

As a manufacturing leader of high performance, energy-efficient glass products for commercial, residential, interior, transportation, solar and specialty applications, Guardian Glass makes products that help improve people’s lives. By allowing abundant natural light into homes, offices and vehicles, glass products can help contribute to occupants’ well-being.

Guardian EPDs

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a verified and registered document that communicates transparent  information about the life-cycle environmental impact of a product. 

Guardian EPDs are developed specific to the region where the glass is manufactured. By publishing EPDs, Guardian supports architects and designers who strive to understand the environmental impact of the buildings they design through the products they specify. The goal is to provide them with the information needed to calculate their buildings whole life carbon (WLC) emissions and achieve credits in global building rating systems, such as LEED® and BREEAM®. One EPD is available from Guardian Glass Europe. For certifications and declarations for Guardian Glass products manufactured in North America, Latin America or AMEI (Africa, Middle East, India) regions, please refer to that region’s webpage.

Flat glass products EPD

The Guardian Flat Glass Products EPD is valid for flat glass products produced in Europe. The products covered by this EPD include float, coated and laminated glass such as Guardian UltraClear™ low-iron glass, Guardian Clarity™ anti-reflective glass, SunGuard™ architectural glass, ClimaGuard™ residential glass, and other applications. The EPD contains a complete listing of all products covered.

On 29th June 2021, Guardian Glass in Europe renewed its Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for its float, coated and laminated glass products for an additional five years. 

In addition, the scope of the EPD has been widened to consider CO2 emissions generated from production processes, increasing Guardian’s level of transparency provided to our customers. Guardian took steps to consider additional system boundaries during the lifecycle assessment (LCA) like end-of-life stage and Reuse, Recovery and Recycling potential. 

Please note that the ‘’average’’ glass pane used in the modeling of the LCA is a calculated average (estimated generalized value) for the pane thickness and area, and does not represent a specific product manufactured by Guardian Glass.  For calculations based on our regional float glass production values, please refer to the embodied carbon calculation feature in the Performance Calculator.
