Healthier Materials Choices and Disclosure Options

Haiwatha 3

With growing awareness of the connection between health, productivity, and indoor air quality, many purchasers and specifiers are starting to look more closely at materials used to construct, fit-out, clean, and decorate buildings. This session we will hear authentic stories from manufacturers of the challenges and best practices associated with becoming chemically transparent, and from service providers that inform purchasing and design professionals on material health issues. Speakers will discuss lessons learned in screening and assessing chemicals, optimization strategies and impacts of disclosure on organizations, strategies for engaging supply chains to gather information, and best practices for managing and sharing data to ensure accuracy of disclosures.
