In force since January 2022 for housing and from July 2022 for certain tertiary buildings, the RE2020 environmental regulation requires reductions in the carbon impact of buildings. FDES will thus become increasingly useful for calculating the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of a building (carbon emitted by the construction of building).

What is an FDES?

An FDES is an environment and health declaration form that describes the environmental profile of a product based on its Life Cycle Assessment. It quantifies the product’s various environmental impacts.
The indicators quoted in an FDES make it possible to choose a specific product or construction method with high environmental performance for a particular project. FDES also help in the award of environmental certificates for buildings such as HQE, BREEAM®, LEED® or BBC.
