Sustainable roofing solutions by Sika

One of Sika’s key targets is to provide sustainable products and systems. So the trade fair “Consense” (International Trade Fair and Congress for Sustainable Building, Investment, Operations and Maintenance) in Stuttgart, Germany was chosen for the handing over of the EPDs to Sika. IBU managing director Dr. Burkhart Lehmann handed over the four documents to Georg Lind, target market manager Roofing at Sika Germany. Both agreed that EPDs are an important contribution to more sustainability in the construction sector.

The EPDs for the Sarnafil FPO membranes were created according to ISO 14025 and EN 15804. They give a transparent overview about all relevant data, among others information about the products and a life cycle analysis (LCA). The LCA data were provided by the Sika Corporate Product Sustainability Group, the product information was edited by Sika Germany. Thanks to this cooperation the creation of the EPDs could be managed completely internally.

Each EPD is reviewed by an independent third party to ensure its completeness, consistency and accuracy.
