In 2020, BIA launched an industry-wide clay brick Environmental Product Declaration (EPD). This EPD provides evidence of clay brick's sustainable benefits and allows designers to further recognize clay brick's role as a major element in sustainable design and construction.
For a list of participating brick manufacturers and more information, please see the full EPD here.
There are reasons why there is a vibrant salvage market for brick, but not one for fiber cement, vinyl siding and other synthetic materials. Brick is essentially 100% recyclable and is frequently retained on buildings when they are completely renovated. Moreover, the building codes allow brick to be re-used as an exterior cladding material in another building.
