Leviton Network Solutions today announced that it is now providing Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) on end-to-end global copper systems. Leviton’s EPDs are third-party verified by UL and visible on UL’s SPOT Product Database. The EPD is a registered document that communicates a standard set of comprehensive information about a product’s environmental impact throughout its lifecycle. EPDs play a key role in contributing towards the many green building certification programs available today.
To create an EPD, a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is first completed by an independent third-party organization specializing in LCA reports. The LCA is a detailed product assessment over its entire life cycle, from the initial raw materials, through to the final disposal or reuse. Based on the LCA, an EPD reports a product’s environmental impact areas, including important data on factors that affect the earth, our atmosphere, and aquatic systems. Customers now have access to Leviton’s EPDs. View Leviton’s EPDs here. They are inclusive for these Leviton copper products:

“As a global leader, we are committed to protecting the environment through the design, manufacture, and delivery of sustainable network infrastructure,” said Ross Goldman, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Leviton Network Solutions. Goldman also serves as the Chief Sustainability Officer for Leviton. “Combining our complete end-to-end global copper systems with EPDs allows our customers to make more informed decisions about sustainable infrastructure and enables them to contribute towards credits in various green building programs.”
EPDs only further Leviton’s commitment to sustainability. In 2022, Leviton rolled out CN2030, a corporate sustainability program to reach carbon neutrality across all Leviton global business operations by 2030.
