Environmental Profiles Certification Scheme



Environmental Profiles Certification Scheme

Certificate Description

The Environmental Profiles Certification Scheme is a method of identifying and assessing environmental effects associated with building materials.

The profiling scheme involves calculating the ‘cradle to grave’ environmental profile of a building material, product, or system. This method measures all environmental impacts, during both manufacture and use, over a typical building lifetime. Once certified, environmental profiles are reviewed on an annual basis to ensure they remain valid, and are recalculated every three years.

The environmental profiles are managed by BRE, a group of researchers, scientists, engineers, and technicians working to make the built environment better for all.
