Consumer demands on Type III environmental declarations
Christiansen K, Wesnæs M, Weidema B P (2006)
Report commissioned by ANEC – the consumer voice in standardisation.
Executive summary and recommendations
We have analysed the main consumer demands on environmental declarations as well as consumer concerns on EPDs, structured under four headings:
- Comprehensibility and comparability of the environmental information
- Reliability of data
- Completeness of the environmental information
- Adequate stakeholder involvement
The analysis results in a number of recommendations for consumer demands on standardisation for each of these items.
Ten example EPDs have been produced to demonstrate how the recommendations can work in practice.
