start2see has recently updated the ISCA Materials Calculator to v2.0 (ISv2.0). (ISAP’s can download ISv2.0 after logging in to ISCA’s website portal.)

You might have heard us talk at the ISCA conference in Sydney on October 18, about how ISv2.0 has been aligned with EN 15804 compliant Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). start2see and ISCA have developed a simple one-page document to assist the infrastructure sector in understanding how EPD data can be entered directly into the new calculator, making it easier to compare products and use those with the lowest environmental impact.

Furthermore, through its ISupply program, ISCA is providing manufacturers with an opportunity to have their branded products included in the ISv2.0 calculator. If you want to make the most of your EPDs and add your products to the calculator, then get in touch with ISCA or start2see. You can also contact us if you have any questions about EPDs or the ISv2.0 Materials Calculator in general. We’re happy to help.
