Thursday, 22.09.2022, 15:30 - 17:00

at TU Berlin Main Building H1035in cooperation with International Open Database Network Structure for Sustainable Construction (InData) and Bundesinstitut für Bau-, Stadt-, und Raumforschung (BBSR)

InData’s mission is to support the digitalization of EPD data in order to assess and improve the environmental performance of buildings. EPD data shall be transported in a transparent, credible and useful way. Therefore, InData aims to provide internationally harmonized data structures, rules and guidelines that enable infrastructures for machine-readable data. This will make information in EPDs more understandable, transparent and useful, adding value to the entire data chain. For this, InData has taken over the responsibility for the ILCD+EPD data format and corresponding compliance rules. ILCD+EPD data format is an open source data format for EPD data. In recent years, InData has succeeded in introducing ILCD+EPD data format as an open-source and harmonized data format across Europe. The ILCD+EPD data format is widely used by EPD programme operators and has been adopted by ECO platform in the ECO portal. The workshop will give a review what has been achieved so far and a preview on the next challenging steps.
