Disclosure: The Newest Dimension in Green Building

With the development of the latest green building standards and guidelines such as LEED®, ASHRAE 189.1, and the International Green Building Code, new concepts are emerging to report and document the sustainability of the products used in green buildings. These new concepts include Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Health Product Declarations (HPDs), as well as a number of multi-attribute product standards developed by ASTM, ANSI, and others. Because of the wide variety of materials required to construct the exterior skin of the building, the building envelope industry faces a daunting task of understanding and adapting to these new concepts.  

In this article, Dr. Jim Hoff, Vice President of Research at the Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing will guide you through the new jargon of product disclosure and provide a roadmap for your organization to adapt and thrive in the new era of material transparency.
