wants to invite you to:
Title: The Naked Truth - Building Product Transparency
Stacia Miller, Policy and Advocacy Manager for Cascadia Green Building Council, will be here to discuss the role of product transparency in helping us achieve a future that is socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative. She will provide an introduction to Declare®, the ingredients program developed by partner organization the International Living Future Institute, and how it can support project teams seeking to avoid Red List materials.
Across the building industry we are seeing greater attention paid to materials in rating systems and regulations alike. Human and environmental health considerations are emerging as crucial factors in project design and implementation. As more clients and codes require us to specify healthy products in our projects, we will need to be more knowledgeable about how to work with manufacturers to achieve healthy material selection. Declare helps us to meet these new, stricter requirements while transforming the marketplace by focusing on transparency and open communication.
Come hear about how leading practitioners and manufacturers can secure their competitive advantage through material transparency!
