2017 Product Transparency Trend Report: From Innovation to Early Adoption to Early Mainstream

Since the introduction of LEED v4 and product transparency, new expectations and definitions of a 'greener and healthier' built environment have emerged. What's been happening? In this educational webinar, we will present the findings from this comprehensive report from Sustainable Minds.

Join us to learn about:

  • How the building product industry has invested in creating EPDs, material disclosures or both
  • Which MasterFormat® divisions have the most products with disclosures, and why
  • What are AECs' misconceptions and challenges to finding, selecting and specifying these products today
  • What does success look like?
