Climate Earth’s EPD Essential
EPD Essential is an extremely easy-to-use EPD generator designed for concrete producers who are seeing initial demand for EPDs. Essential enables Ready Mix producers to effectively and efficiently market to customers who make reduced embodied carbon and transparency a high priority.
Our goal with EPD Essential is to enable you to easily produce EPDs that can be incorporated into your bids for low carbon construction and communicate with confidence about the environmental performance of your products and more effectively collaborate with architects and engineers early in a project cycle.
The EPD Essential Generator is a cloud-based software solution that works from a web browser or your smartphone. Producers can more easily design innovative new mixes to meet requirements for any job and immediately generate a fully verified Type III product-specific EPD for the new mix.
A one-time setup fee and an annual subscription provide unlimited new EPDs and includes annual updates for each producer to ensure EPDs are always current with your newest suppliers, materials, and processes at a fraction of the cost of traditional EPDs.
When you are bidding for a job, time is critical. The EPD Generator puts EPDs at your fingertips. Once setup is complete simply enter your new mix design into the EPD Generator and a fully automated, verified and secure EPD will be produced within seconds.
Unlike cumbersome booklet form EPDs from other producers, that list dozens or even hundreds of mixes in long hard to read tables, Climate Earth EPDs are short, mix-specific documents designed to drop into a bid.
Climate Earth’s integration with the EC3 Tool gives Climate Earth EPD Generator customers a competitive advantage. Climate Earth EPDs are all digital and the only EPDs that are uploaded accurately and efficiently to EC3 every day so that your latest mix designs are always available to buyers and specifiers who are increasingly using this tool to evaluate ready mix concrete for purchase.
The EC3 Tool has emerged as the leading software system designed to enable AEC to efficiently use EPD data in purchase decisions. With over 20,000 users, EC3 clearly points to the future.
Other producers’ EPDs are manually loaded and lag by weeks. In a competitive bid environment, timing is everything, giving users of Climate Earth’s EPDs a distinct advantage.
Annual updates to suppliers, materials, transport methods, processes, and technologies are included in the subscription. In addition, as change accelerates, EPD Essential includes an anytime update for a nominal charge. This means your EPDs are alway current and always reflect your latest suppliers, materials, transport methods, processes, and technologies in your continuous effort to optimize mix designs for low carbon.
