The reinforced concrete industry actively supports the transparent reporting of environmental impacts associated with construction products. Many rating systems (LEED V4), standards (ASHRAE 189.1) and green building codes (IgCC) require the submission of environmental product declarations (EPDs) for products delivered to the project site. These EPDs rely on the results of life-cycle assessments to provide information on a number of environmental impacts related to the manufacture of the product, including global warming potential, ozone depletion, acidification, eutrophication and ozone creation.

This EPD for steel reinforcement, which covers the product life cycle from cradle to fabricator gate, satisfies the submission requirements for programs such as LEED and Green Globes. Based on the rules spelled out in the ISO standards relative to EPDs, they can only be used by firms who participated in the development of the EPD through membership in the producing organization. THE SUBMITTING ORGANIZATION OF THE EPD MUST BE VERIFIED AS A CURRENT CRSI FABRICATOR MEMBER AS LISTED BELOW.

CRSI EPD Frequently Asked Questions document.
MEMBERS ONLY: Click here to download the EPD document (login required).

For that reason, an EPD  can only be submitted for project credit by firms that were CRSI members at the time of its development or who have subsequently joined CRSI and submitted environmental impact data relative to their mill/shop. They cannot be submitted for project credit by a fabricator who does not meet these qualifications. In addition, these EPDs can only be used for mill material produced in North America. For fabricated steel reinforcement the EPD can only be used for domestic material produced by a current CRSI Member.

 

CRSI Fabricator Members authorized to submit this EPD in fulfillment of LEED project requirements include:
