Lean In Session with BlueScope – Member Lean In session
16 Jun 2020 at 12:00 pm AEST
In this session, Philippa Stone and Laura Guccione from BlueScope will discuss their commitment to environmental responsibility through Environmental Product Declarations (EPD’s).
EPD’s are a transparent and credible way of communicating the life cycle environmental impacts of a product. As EPDs allow specifiers to make more informed decisions about material selection from an environmental perspective, they are popular for construction-based products and the use of products with EPDs is recognised and rewarded in rating schemes such as Green Star (buildings) and IS (infrastructure). Philippa and Laura will explain the key features of an EPD as well as their application, using BlueScope’s COLORBOND® steel EPD as an example.
Philippa (Pip) Stone is the Sustainability Manager at BlueScope with responsibility for sustainability strategy including the sustainability credentials of BlueScope’s Australian products. Prior to BlueScope, Pip led the sustainability strategy of global construction specialist, ISG and was based in London for 12 years.
Laura Guccione is a Senior Technical Advisor at BlueScope. Her focuses include the development and maintenance of technical sustainability credentials such as EPDs for BlueScope’s Australian suite of products and solutions. Prior to BlueScope, Laura worked as a Sustainability Consultant for South Pole in Sydney and for the UN Environment Programme in Paris.
