Norwegian industry and municipalities are experiencing growing demand for environmental declaration in various contexts. The required declarations (including Environmental Product Declarations or EPDs) illustrate the environmental impacts related to the life cycle of the products. Such analyses are demanding and often costly.
Østfoldforskning uses its long experience in the development of tools that assist manufacturers in producing their own declarations (such as EPDs), municipalities to prepare climate accounts for their waste systems, or consumers to understand the beneficial effect of recycling textiles. The tools are based on the wealth of data we have accumulated through our extensive experience with life cycle assessment.
