By Sustainable Minds on April 16, 2022

Recorded Tue, Nov 9, 2–3pm ET

Meet the leading material ingredient disclosure programs (C2C, HPD, Declare) helping AECOs and MFRs make better decisions about materials used in products and projects. While the disclosures from all the programs contribute to green building rating system materials credits, each provides different information.

Attend each one to learn about:
AECOs – The different info provided in each type of disclosure and how to use to make decisions about brands and products

MFRs – Which program(s) is right for your business based on R&D, innovation, market position and sales goals
