Woodspan PASS™

A PASS™ is a Product Assurance Supplier Statement.

A PASS™ makes a clear, rigorous statement that Woodspan PLT panels comply with all the necessary regulations and legislation. It also summarises Woodspan PLT panels scope of use and any limitations.

Environmental (EPD)

Woodspan PLT manufactured by Taranakipine, and other Wood Processors and Manufacturers Association (WPMA) members have developed an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for NZ Radiata pine.

An EPD is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable data and other relevant environmental information about the life-cycle environmental impact of a product. Multiple datasets are included in an EPD: resource consumption of energy, water and renewable resources, and emissions to air, water and soil. This data is aggregated using multiple environmental impacts including contributions to climate change (carbon footprint), air, water and soil pollution and resource depletion.

It is an excellent tool that provides designers with an independent means to make direct product comparisons and make informed specification decisions. Products with EPDs are also awarded two points when used in NZ Greenstar projects. Download the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Radiata pine here.
