It is for this reason that Kiwa ISA Sport, supported by specialists in the field of life-cycle analyses, has developed a system that can be used to determine the sustainability of playing fields and associated products. The method is based on EN14040 and EN14044, consisting of analyses of a product throughout its entire life cycle. The outcome is a categorization based on a sustainability indicator / Eco-label.
The method also leads to an EPD (= Environmental Product Declaration) report or environmental statement in accordance with EN15804.
Who is it for?
Companies and municipalities that are aiming to procure sustainably;
Manufacturers and building contractors that supply to organizations that are aiming to procure sustainably;
Manufacturers that want to make sustainable products.
When do you need it?
To demonstrate that you are aiming to work in a sustainable manner;
To compare the environmental impact of various playing fields and/or components;
To award an Eco-label to specific playing fields and/or components.
