New CEU: Wood and Environmental Product Declarations

July 4, 2013

This CEU explains why EPDs are important, and how to understand and use the information in an EPD, with particular reference to EPDs recently released for lumber and glued laminated timber (glulam). The wood industry in the U.S. and Canada has been at the forefront of the trend, undertaking research and developing life cycle information that verify the environmental impact of wood building products. As the tools for analyzing and substantiating environmental performance become more sophisticated, the wood industry is working to use them to help the building community better understand wood as a building material in the context of its environmental impact.
