Environmental Product Declaration For Top-Selling Lift Models
The Cibes Lift Group can now provide an Environmental Product Declaration for their most popular platform lift models.
The construction industry is in the process of making a huge green shift. Carbon efficiency and manufacturing transparency have become key factors in procurement decisions, resulting in a growing demand for sustainable products with certified documentation. The Cibes Lift Group can now provide an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for their top-selling platform lift models, manufactured in Sweden, the Cibes A5000 and the Kalea A4 Primo.
The EPD is a document that presents a product’s environmental impact according to a clearly defined standard. All EPDs are based on a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) which analyses the impact of the product throughout its entire lifespan.
“The LCA not only analyses the impact of our lifts from the cradle to the grave but also enables us to identify the areas that we need to focus on to reduce our impact even further. The LCA also makes sure that we base all our strategic decisions on facts”, says Emil Mårtensson, Sustainability Coordinator at Cibes Lift Group.
Every EPD report needs to be approved by an independent verifier before publication to ensure the objectivity and reliability of the data. All reports are created according to the same global standard, which makes it easy to compare the environmental effects of products manufactured by different companies within the same industry.
“In my opinion, all lift manufacturers who want to be active in the sustainability field should start working on offering their customers EPD reports for their products. The EPD offers our customers full transparency and the possibility to compare the impact of our top-selling lift models with competing products. Creating the EPD has been a lot of hard work, but it has been more than worth it because now we can take our sustainability work to the next level”, Emil Mårtensson, concludes.
The Cibes Lift Group created their EPD in close cooperation with the Swedish consultant company Miljögiraff. The EPD is available on the websites of Cibes Lift, Kalea Lifts, and Cibes Lift Group on the 29th of March 2022.
