Transparency is the New Green in product selection, specification & procurement: Material Disclosure Miniseries, Part 3 of 3 - Understanding Declare & Living Products

By Sustainable Minds on June 15, 2022

Recorded Tue, Jun 7, 2-3pm ET

Meet the leading material ingredient disclosure programs (Declare & Living Product Challenge, Health Product Declaration, Cradle to Cradle Certified®) 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

The Declare label and Living Product Challenge certification are nutrition labels for products. Whether your goals are climate, health, or justice, they are where designers and manufacturers can take action on their sustainability pledges.

Join us for demos and to learn about:

  • How Declare and Living Product Challenge have sparked industry transformation and how new updates are redefining healthy materials.
