Honesty Rules in the New Materials Economy: Transparency, Accessibility, and Transformational Change

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you need more experience with utilizing search tools to find meaningful transparency data to assist you in finding materials for your LBC project? After hearing testaments making the case for transparency from a sustainability expert in manufacturing, a building products management guru, and a design professional, attendees will partake in a simulation exercise in which they will select the most appropriate building materials for a project after learning how to evaluate and compare Declare labels. The exercise will help participants understand the benefits of Declare, as well as develop the skills needed to compare transparency information for similar products.

If you are interested in attending this session, we advise you bring a tablet or laptop in order to participate hands-on.
