Knauf Insulation is committed to providing the market with the information it needs to be able to properly asses the environmental impact of our products/solutions. We are leading the industry in providing such precise information on the sustainability of our products/solutions. And now, our corporate website has a list of our existing EPDs, with the list continuing to grow. Our EPDs cover each technology, and represent today over 50% of our sales – an incredible achievement towards covering our entire product range. To see the list of EPDs, visit: http://www.knaufinsulation.com/en/product-sustainability. We continually update this list of EPDs, which is a collation of EPDs published on the national databases (links to those are also available on the EPD page).

What’s more, we have dramatically cut the time needed to create an EPD through an innovative data collection system and pre-verification of part of the process. Creating an EPD used to take up to 6 months, but we have reduced the time it takes to process and publish an EPD to as little as three weeks, wherever our innovative data collection process has been implemented.

Interpreting the results

Our GMW and RMW EPD results (with the exception of the French FDES) are expressed per m³ of product and are therefore applicable to a number of thicknesses. To calculate the result for a particular thickness, a simple calculation according to the ‘rule of three’ need be applied.
