About the EPD Project

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund project, part of the wider Tees Valley Combined Authority Net Zero project, aims to enhance the economic resilience and competitive positioning of SMEs in the Tees Valley by facilitating the creation of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). EPDs are standardised documents that provide detailed information about the environmental impact of products across their lifecycle, based on comprehensive Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs).

Supporting SMEs in Sustainability

Catherine will be instrumental in the data collection phase of the EPD project, helping SMEs gather and manage the necessary environmental data. This project will also offer training workshops to build SMEs’ capacity to understand and implement LCAs and EPDs, ensuring they can meet increasing sustainability standards and market demands.

We are committed to supporting SMEs in their sustainability journeys. Catherine’s role will involve creating EPDs and educating SMEs on the broader implications of sustainability practices, including an awareness of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM).
