See below how Acoustic ceilings & Wall panels by Ecophon can contribute to BREEAM criteria: Life cycle impacts
More than 90% of Ecophon’s products, composed of sustainable materials, have third-party certified EPDs (EN 15804). This means that our products can be credited in BREEAM’s "Environmental Product Declarations" (EPDs) section and gives you great flexibility in choosing acoustic ceilings.
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.

Ecophon has the market's widest range of acoustic absorbers with third-party certified EPDs. This makes it easy to create visually and acoustically attractive environments while meeting the requirements for BREEAM credits within this criterion.
Our EPDs are set up according to EN 15804 and meet the requirements set out in the BREEAM manual.
To earn one credit, a total of five EPDs are required, with a maximum of two EPDs in each group in Table 44 (see section Mat 03).
For exemplary level criteria, a total of 10 EPDs is required.
The EPDs can be downloaded from Ecophon’s or Environdec’s websites.
