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 since facility specific information is collected to quantify the environment impact of a product. The standards by which these impacts are measured can vary by region. By publishing EPDs, Guardian Glass intends to support architects and designers who strive to understand the sustainability profiles of the buildings they design through the products they specify. The goal is to provide them with the information needed to achieve credits in global green building rating systems, such as LEED® and BREEAM®. Two EPDs are available from Guardian Glass North America. For Guardian Glass products manufactured in Europe, please refer to the Guardian Europe webpage for a listing of European EPDs.
