Thursday, November 15 from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM | Booth 163 - Materials ALA « Back

Abstract Text:

Product Transparency requests can be a major headache for manufacturers. Requests for Health Product Declarations (HPDs), Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Red List Free products, Declare labels and so forth can be complicated and time consuming. This session will explore the product transparency landscape and explain the drivers behind these health and environmental product transparency requests. The session will focus on how large institutional and green building rating systems like LEED, WELL and LBC are rewarding manufacturers who provide product transparency information with points and even orders for products. The session will highlight best practices from manufacturers participating in these programs and share easy to understand best practices for managing product transparency information. William Paddock, Managing Director of WAP Sustainability will lead the session along with Philip Ivey Strategic Sustainability Leader for Milliken & Company and Ranae Anderson, Global Sustainability Leader for Universal Fibers.
