The PCR document is scheduled to be completed by fall 2013.
“Gloria’s presentation is especially timely considering quantitative and verified information on the environmental and health impacts of consumer products is increasingly being sought in both the U.S. and international markets,” says Rich Walker, AAMA’s president and CEO. “When finalized, the PCR document will offer manufacturers the tools needed to provide comprehensive, product-specific Environmental Product Declarations to their customers.”
The PCR document is a response to a widely recognized need for a single ANSI-approved resource to use in developing industry recognized and uniform, comparative EPDs and substantive LCAs, according to AAMA.
The AAMA Summer Conference will be held June 9-12 in Rosemont, Ill. Registration is available online at www.aamanet.org.
