Open Doors with the PEP Ecopassport Program

Learn how to utilize an industry derived tool, the Product Environmental Profile (PEP) ecopassport program, to meet market requirements. A PEP is a type of environmental declaration for electrical and electronic products that helps communicate sustainability information effectively with customers.  SGS will elaborate on how a PEP provides a standardized way to determine and communicate environmental impacts such as: carbon footprint, raw material depletion, water use, acidification and others.

Product Environmental Declarations are being requested by a growing number of organizations, from IT to Architecture, so that the products’ environmental impact information is considered during the purchase process.  These declarations also provide a path to achieving credits within LEED v4, the newest version of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system, released in 2013.  

In addition to market requirements which have increased the popularity of PEPs, the European Union is developing the guidelines for its Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) program, which will mandate the communication of products environmental impacts.  SGS and leaders in the E&E sector are working to shape how this new program will effect environmental communications for E&E products.

SGS invites you to an informative webinar, discussing some of the recent developments with the PEF program and explaining what a Product Environmental Profile is and how having one for your commercial electronic products can help you:

  • Communicate to customers on impacts and attributes of products
  • Differentiate from the competition on calls for tender
  • Avoid accusations of green washing by employing a standardized communication format
