PaperStone® – the innovative material made from FSC®-certified paper and cardboard combined with a natural resin – has been awarded with an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certificate.

Achieving an EPD certificate for PaperStone® allows CDUK to provide transparent data about the environmental sustainability of the innovative material and to support architects and designers to get their projects recognised by building assessment schemes including BREEAM, LEED and WELL Building Standard®.

The EPD certificate is just the latest achievement for PaperStone®, which is made from FSC-certified paper and cardboard combined with a petroleum free and VOC-free phenolic resin (PetroFree™), as well as being NSF certified and meeting Euroclass C-s1,d0 Reaction to Fire Classification.

The certificate covers popular colours Charcoal, Graphite, Gunmetal, Pewter, Sand and Slate, and is expected to be extended to the whole range later this year.

This achievement further demonstrates the environmental impact of PaperStone®, following a series of recognitions from industry awards, including Mixology Awards, SBID International Design Awards and Designer Awards.

Vicki Richmond, Marketing Director of CDUK, said:

“A key focus for CDUK is to provide the architecture and design community with all the necessary tools to create outstanding designs that are built to last and to be kind to both our planet and human wellbeing. PaperStone® perfectly encapsulates aesthetics, functionality and sustainability and achieving an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certificate is a testament to the first-class credentials of the new generation material”.
