Environmental Product Declaration

About us

Environmental Product Declaration

Saint-Gobain PAM UK has become the first UK manufacturer to register independently verified type 3 Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) across its range of access covers and gratings.

The most comprehensive way of developing a sustainable built environment is to use life cycle analysis for environmental assessment.   At Saint-Gobain PAM UK we apply this approach as part of our Eco-Innovation process and believe that the entire life cycle should be considered when developing any new solution or product. 

Obviously many of our products aid the environment by dissipating flooding or protecting against cable theft for example, but as ductile iron products we need to understand the environmental impact of their manufacture and use from cradle to grave.  The data within the EPD covers the entire process from raw material extraction and processing, through manufacturing, transport, installation, maintenance and finally end of life and recycling.
