Owens Corning recently announced receipt of UL-certified ISO-compliant Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for its unfaced and Kraft-faced EcoTouch® PINK® FIBERGLAS™ Insulation with PureFiber® technology and its Unbonded LooseFill insulation. Reportedly an industry first for fiber glass building insulation in North America, the EPDs describe the environmental impact of the insulation products based on an established set of product category rules and independently verified lifecycle assessment (LCA) data from cradle-to-grave. Through the LCA process, products are evaluated on several parameters, including raw materials production and transportation, product manufacturing and plant operations, product packaging, transportation and distribution of the insulation products, and end-of-life impact.

“The UL-certified EPDs for our EcoTouch unfaced and Kraft-faced batts and unbonded LooseFill insulation reflect our commitment to sustainability and our pledge to be transparent about our products’ environmental performance through certification by credible third parties,” said Gale Tedhams, director of Sustainability. “The EPDs are a valuable tool, providing the next level of product information for architects, builders and specifiers to help them meet certain criteria for green building and make sustainable purchasing decisions.”
