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 high-performance buildings have emerged. What's been happening? In this educational webinar, we will continue to explore and understand the findings from this comprehensive report by Sustainable Minds.

In last month's webinar, we unveiled the report's overall findings. This month we will take a deep dive and examine environmental impact reporting trends of the past 5 years.

Join us to learn about:

  • Which MasterFormat® divisions have the most product category rules (PCRs) and Type III environmental declarations (EPDs), who is creating them and why
  • The imperative to create product group benchmarks to enable comparisons and set long-term improvement goals; and importance for AECs to request industry organizations to lead these efforts
  • AECs' misconceptions and challenges using EPDs in product selection
  • What success can look like going forward
