  • Explain how publications such as: product Life Cycle Assessment, Environmental Product Declarations and the Product Category Rules are tools to elevate environmental impacts, select the best resources, and promote LEED certification for building owners.
  • Review how Environmental Product Declarations and other certifications contribute to minimal environmental impacts during product selection and contribute to sustainable design.
