Alberta Pulse Breaks Ground with First Certified Environmental Product Declaration

Jun 21, 2018 at 10:00 AM MDT

Presenter: Nevin Rosaasen - Policy and Program Specialist, Alberta Pulse Growers Commission

Join us for our Sustainable Series webinar! Alberta field peas are the first agri-food commodity to have a certified environmental product declaration (EPD) in North America. Alberta Pulse Growers (APG) and Alberta Agriculture and Forestry (AF) worked collaboratively through the process of applying and receiving an EPD certification. The Alberta Pea EPD is based on the 2016 life cycle assessment (LCA) that was completed using Alberta pulse producers on-farm information.
