Polarputki has started using EPD-certified hydroelectric power
As environmental issues are important to us, Polarputki Oy's Steel Service Center in Niittytie, Vantaa, has started using EPD-certified (EPD = Environmental Product Declaration) hydroelectric power as of 1 January 2021. Hydropower is low-emission, renewable energy and is supplied to us by Vattenfall.
Benefits of EPD (Environmental Statement):
- quality assured figures e.g. emissions, resource use, impacts on biodiversity
- objectivity, based on ISO 14025 certification requirements
- comparability, i.e. the requirement for common rules in this area
- quality guarantee, which is subject to verification by an independent third party.
