Grey Matters Exclusive Reseller of One Click LCA EPDs in Gulf Region

One Click LCA designates Grey Matters as the exclusive reseller of EPDs in the Gulf countries

The partnership between One Click LCA and Grey Matters supports the realization of major projects and advances sustainable building practices and environmental impact reduction for the built environment across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries — including Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

Helsinki, April 23, 2024 One Click LCA, a global leader in software solutions for life-cycle assessment (LCA) and environmental product declarations (EPDs) for the construction sector, announces its significant partnership with Grey Matters, a pioneer in the Gulf region’s construction industry. This collaboration designates Grey Matters as the exclusive reseller of One Click LCA's environmental product declaration (EPD) generation solutions across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, advancing sustainable construction practices in one of the world’s most dynamic construction markets.

Advancing the EPD Generation in the Gulf Cooperation Council region

EPDs are becoming increasingly requested, and sometimes mandatory specially for concrete manufacturers — with concrete being the third largest emitter of CO2 in the world, according to the Global Carbon Budget (2023) report. In the Gulf region, the need for EPDs has never been more critical, especially ready-mix concrete manufacturers facing a growing demand for EPDs from clients to adopt sustainable practices. However, the EPD generation process is often complex, time-consuming, and costly.

Addressing this demand, the One Click LCA’s Concrete EPD Generator offers a streamlined solution that simplifies the EPD creation process. This user-friendly tool not only ensures compliance with the highest industry standards and regulations but also facilitates the adoption of sustainable construction practices with greater ease. One Click LCA’s EPD Generator makes the generation of EPDs efficient and seamless, meeting the growing demand from developers who now require such declarations more frequently as part of the procurement process.

“Our partnership with Grey Matters leverages their strong market presence and local expertise, ensuring that One Click LCA’s EPD software can advance sustainable construction practices across the Gulf region. The collaboration enables manufacturers to generate reliable sustainability data and thus for designers and contractors, and other stakeholders to decarbonize their projects with best products. We are happy to collaborate with Grey Matters to advance this important agenda in the Gulf region.”

- Panu Pasanen, CEO of One Click LCA

The partnership is a significant step toward a zero-carbon future in the construction industry. Grey Matters' regional insight and expertise in serving the construction industry, specifically the concrete sector, along with One Click LCA’s global reach and advanced technical solutions is set to redefine sustainable construction practices by delivering comprehensive sustainability solutions that cater to the unique requirements of the GCC region's construction sector, making significant contributions toward reducing the environmental impact of the built environment in the Middle East and beyond.

“LCA and EPDs are recently being introduced in the GCC market where new mega projects have been designed with sustainability objectives and targets. One Click LCA helps serving this demand and the means to execute its necessity. We are eager to be part of the evolution of the market toward a low-carbon future. We commit to set all our resources in this direction.”

- Rabih Fakih, Managing Director of Grey Matters
