At ETEX we are very active on the prescription market with our architectural façade solutions. We learned from our market that our IBU EPDs published on the German platform were no longer sufficient. As the elaboration of LCAs and EPDs is expensive and time consuming we went looking for a better solution. We wanted quick environmental impact calculations of our full fibercement product range and to switch specific country methodologies with one single click. We found the solution with ENPERAS Quadrant.etex-logo-r2-1
