NLMK Ural and NLMK Kaluga, part of NLMK Russia Long Products Division, have been awarded Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certificates for rebar. EPD certification will boost the competitiveness of NLMK products in Russian and international markets.
An Environmental Product Declaration is an independent environmental assessment of a product life cycle based on the ISO 14025 International Standard. The numerous factors considered during its drafting include the type of materials used in production, the amount of resources (such as energy or water) spent, the amount of waste and emissions produced, the type of packaging, and even the mode of transport used to deliver the products to consumers.
Nikita Vorobyev, NLMK Group Director, Environment, said: “Sustainable development principles are a key priority for our company. We are pleased to see our clients also embracing eco-friendly approaches and opting for products with environmental declarations.”
Environmental declarations for NLMK Group companies were elaborated by the Climate and Environmental Management Department of brands & values GmbH (Germany). The NLMK Ural and NLMK Kaluga declarations are published in the EPD roster.
