Recorded Mon, Jan 20, 2–3pm ET | 11–12pm PT

Welcome to our webcast series featuring manufacturers making credibly greener and healthier products. Learn how they are working to understand and improve the environmental performance and material health of their products.

Join Terry Swack, moderator, to learn about:

  • Embodied carbon, net zero energy, net zero carbon, biogenic materials and carbon sink/carbon storing materials: What these terms mean and how they relate
  • Strategies for reducing up-front embodied and operational carbon emissions to get to net zero carbon
  • Loose-Fill Cellulose Insulation: What it is & how to use
  • The first industry-wide EPD created as a benchmark to which product-specific EPDs can be compared and how the embodied carbon results compare to other types of insulation in the Embodied Carbon in Construction (EC3) tool
  • Using the Transparency Catalog, do more in 1 click
