By Sustainable Minds on March 28, 2016

Recorded Wed, March 23, 2pm ET/11am PT

Donovan Hardenbrook, Director, Health Product Declaration® Collaborative
Tara Blank, Ph.D., Principal, Elixir Environmental
Terry Swack, CEO, Sustainable Minds

Reporting product material health is becoming increasingly essential to AEC professionals. If your company isn’t ready, your products may not get specified or even considered for projects.

LEED v4 encourages manufacturers to disclose the material contents and related health hazards of their products. The Health Product Declaration (HPD) can be used to earn LEED points. However, manufacturers are challenged to produce these disclosures and AEC professionals are challenged to understand what the information means.

On this webcast: Don will provide an organizational update on the HPD Collaborative and share the latest info on the HPD Open Standard, Builder 2.0 Library and Builder API.

Tara will explain each section of the HPD version 2.0 report and then provide specification strategies to help your company succeed in the marketplace.

Terry will present the SM Material Health Overview™. A cloud-based marketing tool to inform healthier purchase decisions, it makes HPD data understandable with integrated explanation and improvement stories.

Attend this webcast to learn how Health Product Declarations:

  • Help manufacturers make better product design decisions
  • Help AEC professionals make better project design decisions
  • Are used to create SM Material Health Overviews to turn disclosure into brand value by integrating product transparency into product marketing
