Webinar on EPDs for infrastructure assets

Putting transparency in motion: EPDs for infrastructure assets

How do you assess the environmental impacts of a train made up of over 150,000 parts over its full life cycle?  Downer and thinkstep partnered to publish the first Environmental Product Declaration for a train in Australasia.

This webinar presents the key findings of a full Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of over 550 tonnes of materials in construction and maintenance and puts it in relation to the environmental impacts of the train’s entire 30-year use phase.

Ellese O'Sullivan from Downer will share on Downer’s motivation for this study, the project requirements and the value for Downer’s customers and their internal stakeholders.

Jeff Vickers from thinkstep will give you a peek under the hood regarding how such a complex project can be done in a record time of 13 months.
