The Materials Landscape: Reducing Your Material Footprint While Improving Occupant Health

The building materials landscape is quickly changing. Designers are now taking a more sophisticated look at building products with the consideration of Health Product Declarations, Environmental Product Declarations and transparency. We will discuss current materials certifications, their role in building rating systems today, and how specifiers and manufacturers can both navigate where the industry is looking to find the most fitting product. From embodied carbon through persistent toxicity, we will unpack the questions that everyone is asking.
