What’s in Your Building? Material Transparency Tools and Strategies

Learn about what material transparency is and why new trends in chemical disclosure of building materials are important to EHS and sustainability professionals, architects, building owners/operators, consultants, and local government/school officials.  View the slide deck below to view tools for improving a building’s indoor air quality and occupant health, including a new performance-based approach to LEED certification that works for any building. Find out why you should update your sustainable purchasing program, what discussions you can have with suppliers, and where you can look for product disclosure documents. Then learn why the EPA has a new focus on the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) chemicals and how the K-State Pollution Prevention Institute can provide assistance to industries that want help implementing chemical source reduction programs.
