What the #FDES (Fiche de Déclaration Environnementale et Sanitaire) is to France, the EPDs (Environmental Product Declaration) are for many European countries. What all these declarations have in common: They aim to assess CO2 emissions uniformly to reduce them in a sustainable manner. Information on the current environmental declarations are thereby essential tools for assessing and evaluating performance and environmental impact in the context of construction projects. They provide our business partners with essential information so that they can operate on reliable, legally secure terrain when planning their projects.
How does the Xella Group meet the increasing requirements for regulating CO2 emissions in the construction industry? Answer: with research, innovative and sustainable products, and up-to-date data sheets. And this is the case in all our national companies.
