See below how Acoustic ceilings by Eurocoustic can contribute to BREEAM criteria: Life cycle impacts
To recognise and encourage the use of robust and appropriate life cycle assessment tools and consequently the specification of construction materials with a low environmental impact (including embodied carbon) over the full life cycle of the building.
Reductions in the building’s environmental life cycle impacts through assessment of the main building elements. The number of credits awarded is function of the calculator point achieved. In addition, where a range of at least five products specified at Design Stage and installed by Post-Construction Stage are covered by verified EPD, 1 credit awarded.

Life Cycle Assessment is a necessary step to assess the environmental footprint of the whole building. Indeed, it consists in quantifying all the inputs and outputs (materials, energy ...) to assess environmental impacts associated with the building from the choice of building materials until the end of life.
With this in mind, Eurocoustic has invested in the realization of complete LCAs of its products to provide consumers with Environmental and Health Product Declarations (EHPD) in accordance with the applicable standards. All our products have verified third party verified EHPDs available on INIES database. This analysis also allows us to assess the environmental impact of our products in order to improve their ecological footprint at each stage of their life cycle. As a result, the choice of Eurocoustic products will contribute to the reduction of 10% required to obtain this credit.
