Webinar recorded Tuesday, March 28 | 2–3pm ET
Learn about Tarkett's healthy products & how the SM/CHPS partnership benefits manufacturers and AECs.

The SM/CHPS partnership promotes the use of products with environmental and material health disclosures in K-12 educational facilities. We invite manufacturers to list their products in the SM Transparency Catalog.

CHPS is a leading national organization working to improve student performance by building the best possible schools, incorporating integrated design, sustainable products, and leading construction practices. To allocate more resources to its core mission, CHPS will be retiring its High Performance Products Database and partnering with Sustainable Minds.

The SM Transparency Catalog is a free, online source that makes it simple and easy for the AEC community to find products that meet the CHPS Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) and Material Health Reporting credit requirements, and for manufacturers to communicate the availability of their compliant products.
