About

Building materials and furniture are complex. Understanding the health impacts of the products specified every day is even more complex. Join two well known leaders in sustainable healthcare design and two sustainable leaders in the furniture and flooring product industries to learn more about the Health Product Declaration (HPD): an objective tool for accurate product content reporting and the relationship of product content to human and ecological health. Attendees will learn how the HPD is integrated into building certification systems (LEED v4), product labels, and product assessments; and will have a deeper understanding of the critical importance of transparency.

Objectives

  1. Explain the Health Product Declaration: how it was developed, why it is needed in the marketplace, and who are championing its use.
  2. Understand the context of the building materials ecosystem and the correlation between building products and human health.
  3. Interpret the significance of product ingredient reporting to improve the specification process and refine the next generation of available products.
  4. Identify building rating systems, product certifications, and product labels that are harmonizing with the Health Product Declaration.
