The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an independently verified document that quantifies the environmental impact of a product or service along all its life cycle and communicates it in a transparent and comparable way, facilitating comparison between products fulfilling the same function.
The impact of a product is measured by means of the Life Cycle Assessment methodology, an objective procedure which takes into account all the inputs and outputs associated with its life cycle, from raw materials extraction to the reuse, recycling or disposal of final waste.
For Syngenta Biologicals, the EPD certification implements our concrete commitment to creating a sustainable future for people and nature. We believe that our goal of a more sustainable agricultural production while retaining quality and quantity can be reached only by making every single link of the value chain sustainable, starting by our own solutions. That is why the EPD certification is important to us: not only it communicates in a clear and objective way the impact of our products, but also allows us to gain deeper understanding of our environmental performances with the aim of continuous improvement.
The EPD certification continues the Syngenta Biologicals' journey to sustainability, whose first steps trace back the initiatives carried out by our legacy company, Valagro, since the 1990's. For us, care of the environment, product quality and workers’ health and safety are pivotal concepts, and the certifications obtained by our historical Atessa plant testifies to our commitment through time:
