INIES database is where you can find FDES of construction products, PEP of building equipment, service data (energy, water…) and inventories of materials life-cycle compliant with French regulatory requirements and backed by French and European standards.
All that information is supplied on a voluntary basis by manufacturers of professional unions based on life-cycle assessment (LCA) compliant with French regulatory requirements and backed by French and European standards. A significant part of this data is verified by independent third-parties.
Developed in 2004, the database is an operational and essential tool to make eco-design of buildings widespread. Since 2011, Alliance HQE-GBC is the owner and manager of the database.
