Product Benchmarking… Don’t just take our word for it.
Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)
CalStar worked with Perkins+Will to complete an ISO-compliant life cycle assessment (LCA) for brick. We’ve had our CalStar LCA results third-party verified and published our findings in the first Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for brick. The CalStar EPD outlines 13 different environmental impacts over the entire life cycle of our product, from raw material extraction through end-of-life.
CalStar has also achieved SMaRT© Certification at the Platinum level, for their Bricks, Pavers, and Thru-Wall units. Sustainable Materials Rating Technology (SMaRT) is the world’s leadership sustainable product standard and label approved for credit by the US Green Building Council’s LEED program globally, the Canada Green Building Council, and the Australia and New Zealand Green Building Councils.
