In an effort to be more transparent, the material manufacturing industry is confronted with a demand for documents that disclose how much of an environmental footprint products have and their potential health risks.

Along with an EPD, those in the manufacturing industry must also meet the Health Product Declaration (HPD) which discloses the potential health hazards found in materials that make up a product.
One company, CarbonCure Technologies, is helping those in the concrete industry work with sustainable design groups to meet the EPD and HPD standard.
