METRA: METRA Building products obtain EPD certification

29 March 2022

METRA Group once again confirms its commitment to sustainability by obtaining the EPD certification for METRA Building products.
The EPD declaration is a document that describes the environmental impacts related to the production, transport, use and end of life of a specific quantity of products.
The certifications obtained refer to the life cycle analysis of products based on an LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) study, which defines the use of resources and the impacts on the surrounding environment at various stages of the life cycle. The steps analysed by METRA consider the entire window and curtain wall life cycle, from foundry to end-of-life disposal through extrusion, painting, transport, manufacturing, etc. All EPDs have been subject to verification and validation by ICMQ.

METRA Building is fully aware that today it is not possible to escape the responsibilities towards the environment deriving from its own activities, and that is why it is constantly careful in protecting the environment: using adequate resources, optimising the use of raw materials, minimising energy consumption. These are just some of the steps that have allowed to certify the environmental sustainability of the processes, from which 100% recyclable aluminium products are created. You can find all METRA Building products subject to EPD certificates in our table below.
