Getting Started with Environmental Product Declarations: An Overview of Current Practice & Policy Considerations for NY and NJ
Presented By Joseph Shacat, Director of Sustainable Pavements
National Asphalt Pavement Association
Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are environmental labels that quantify the environmental impacts associated with manufacturing asphalt mixtures and other construction materials. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) recently became the first public agency on the east coast to require paving contractors to submit EPDs for asphalt mixtures. Initially, PANYNJ will only use EPDs for informational purposes, but the agency plans to use EPDs to develop procurement policies that aim to reduce the carbon footprint of asphalt mixtures and other construction materials. Meanwhile, the Federal government is considering EPD requirements at both the policy level (for direct Federal procurement, such as National Parks and Department of Defense facilities) and through legislation (which would affect federally funded state and local highway projects).
During this webinar, you will learn what EPDs are, how to develop them, and the basics of how to interpret the information in an EPD. We will also discuss implications for procurement policy that paving contractors and asphalt mix producers should consider as PANYNJ and other agencies move forward with new requirements related to EPDs.
