    A developing system across Europe is the provision of an Environmental Product Declarations EPD for construction products which characterises the environmental impacts of the manufacture of the products and therefore their contribution to the overall sustainability performance of the buildings of which they form part An EPD covers a total of 7 impact categories including Global Warming Potential GWP Ozone Depletion Acidification of soil and water and depletion of other natural resources In December 2013 the Building Research Establishment BRE have approved and issued one of the first EPD in the UK covering UK manufactured clay bricks This can be accessed by following the link below This has been created using the methodology prescribed in BS EN 15804 which is intended to form the basis of Harmonised EPD across Europe Previously in the UK this has been done by Environmental Profiles prepared by the Building Research Establishment BRE and such a profile has been available for UK manufactured clay bricks since 1998 Wienerberger Sustainability Unfortunately harmonisation of the systems for assessing EPD across different European countries is still some way away and therefore care needs to be taken when comparing EPD for different products Some but not all Wienerberger products marketed in the UK have an up to date EPD but this needs to be considered on a product specific basis as this is a developing situation For an updated postion on the progress of Environmental Product Declarations in the UK please see The Wienerberger Life Cycle Assessment and Environmental Product Declarations document in the Related Links below Sustainability at Wienerberger Related Downloads Wienerberger Life Cycle Assessment and Environmental Product Declarations 147 90KB BRE Environmental Product Declaration EPD UK bricks 672 69KB Construction Products Association CPD Guide 2 41MB EPD Wienerberger Belgian Traditional Blocks 237 56KB EPD Wienerberger Belgian New

    not yet fully established or recognised in the UK the sustainability credentials of building products in many parts of Europe are demonstrated by the use of accreditation to the Nature Plus scheme Nature Plus This particularly considers and recognises the natural characteristics of clay building products and the fact that they contain no hazardous components or materials which are particularly damaging to the environment Wienerberger Porotherm in production Porotherm clay blocks manufactured at Wienerberger factories in Belgium see pic right have achieved the Nature Plus certification and copies of the press release and the certificate for the Zonnebeke factory can be found below together with general information on the Nature Plus scheme Wienerberger are Founder Members of the Alliance for Sustainable Building Products ASBP who are seeking to establish Nature Plus as a credible Eco Label to demonstrate the sustainability credentials of high quality natural building products in the UK Alliance for Sustainable Building Products ASBP CLICK HERE to visit their site for more information Sustainability at Wienerberger Related Downloads Wienerberger Nature Plus certificate for Zonnebeke Porotherm 112 06KB Wienerberger Nature Plus certificate for Rumst Porotherm 109 36KB Wienerberger Nature Plus certificate for Beerse Porotherm 110 28KB Nature Plus for

    CO2 emissions in relation to the delivered footprint and make them as low as possible Wienerberger Transporting goods in the most sustainable way The energy used and CO 2 emitted during the transportation and delivery of products from the factory of manufacture to the construction site is dependent on a wide number of factors Wienerberger Sustainable Transportation of our products It is generally the case that the CO 2 emitted during transportation and delivery is very small when compared to the embodied CO 2 in the product leaving the factory gate An independent study has shown that the average CO 2 contribution of transport to the overall footprint of a clay brick delivered to site is approximately 4 of the as delivered footprint Although the CO 2 emission levels will vary depending on a number of factors including vehicle type and load size a typical figure which can be used for illustrative purposes would be an emission level of 0 04 kg CO 2 per tonne km More detail would only be available on a case by case basis Because of the wide number of factors to be taken into account it is not necessarily the case that the embodied CO 2 as delivered to site will be lowest for the product which has travelled the least distance from the factory of origin Bricks manufactured at a more remote site which has inherently better energy efficiency and lower CO 2 emissions may actually present a lower embodied CO 2 content as delivered even though the transportation distance is significantly greater Sustainability at Wienerberger Related Links UK the Dutch A sustainable working relationship Related Downloads Wienerberger Transport Policy Document 180 87KB Sandtoft Transport Policy Document 33 77KB Ceram Carbon Footprint Report 2013 156 68KB Wienerberger Transportation Impact Guidelines 127 84KB DRAFT

    products is important As we are increasingly affected by global warming it is becoming more important to consider using materials that offer high thermal mass such as Wienerberger clay bricks and blocks Thermal mass is the ability to store heat bricks absorb heat throughout the day slowly releasing it at night ensuring internal temperatures are consistent throughout the day and night The result is comfortable and healthy living and working

    whilst maintaining good indoor air quality and a healthy indoor environment This means that a builder will normally seek to maximise the thermal insulation properties of the building structure to reduce energy use and CO2 emissions during the life of the building as a preferred solution to other more complex methods of reducing CO2 emissions such as complex heating and ventilation systems which may require on going maintenance or require regular replacement due to a shorter life cycle Wienerberger Following the concept of Fabric First When used with suitable partner insulation materials Wienerberger products are ideally suited to the concept of Fabric First Following the concept of Fabric First as the most cost effective starting point towards zero carbon homes ensuring that the building envelope is as airtight and well insulated as possible the Zero Carbon Hub have proposed a Fabric Energy Efficiency Standard FEES for Zero Carbon Homes which sets a maximum limit on the amount of energy per square metre of floor space per year that would normally be required to maintain comfortable internal temperatures in a home Wienerberger Sustainability Different Standards are established depending on the type of dwelling ie apartment mid terrace end terrace detached etc

    building envelope is as thermally efficient as possible consistent with providing a healthy indoor climate Wienerberger products can assist with this Secondly there may be cost effective on site solutions for providing low carbon heating and ventilation to the building Once these approaches have been optimised the concept of Allowable Solutions is to provide a mechanism where a developer can have an alternative economical way of achieving the necessary balance of CO2 reductions for a development which may otherwise require the installation of non cost effective solutions Allowable Solutions will provide funding for locally relevant carbon saving projects This work is being developed currently by the Zero Carbon Hub Wienerberger Peak Madeira Blend AIR TIGHTNESS Most energy and carbon losses from a building are due to leakage through the building structure Therefore the achievement of zero and low carbon buildings is dependent on both good design and good workmanship to ensure the air tightness of the building envelope Wienerberger products can effectively assist in this if properly designed and used in partnership with suitable proprietary products There is increasing concern that the design energy performance of buildings is not being achieved in practice possibly due to the required standards of
