EPD stands for Environmental Product Declaration.

An EPD is a standardized verified document that illustrates the environmental impacts of a product or even a service throughout its life cycle or at specific stages of its life cycle.

ISO 14025 mentions the EPD as a Type III Declarant which quantifies environmental information derived from the Life Cycle Assessment of a product.
