EL55 - UL Presents: A Panel Discussion: Stakeholder Collaboration for Better IAQ and the Role of Low-Emitting Products

Thursday, November 21 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM | Booth L2023 « Back

Abstract Text:

Achieving good indoor air quality (IAQ) is critical to green building and preserving the health and comfort of building occupants. Selecting low emitting products and developing an IAQ management plan can be effective for creating healthier indoor environments, but these efforts require the collaboration of multiple stakeholders. This session combines panelists representing different roles in the creation of good IAQ: the science of measuring emissions (testing lab), the process of developing and marketing a low-emitting product (manufacturer) and an A&D professional sourcing materials and constructing IAQ management plans. After evaluating the importance of good indoor air quality, the human health and financial impacts, we’ll consider the science behind measuring product emissions. Following this brief primer, our panelists will engage in an interactive discussion, tackling the role of low-emitting products in good IAQ, the value and tactics for developing an IAQ management plan for the life of the building, and best practices and benefits from different stakeholders’ perspectives. After attending this session, attendees will be armed to discuss and leverage low-emitting products in green building projects to create better IAQ.

Learning Objectives:

Identify sources of indoor air pollutants and summarize the impact of indoor air pollution on human health and how this relates to EQ credit – Low Emitting materials which is applicable to LEED v4 BD+C & ID+C as well as LEED v4.1 O+M: Existing Buildings MR Purchasing – Option 2

Explain the difference between low VOC emissions and low VOC content and the significance related to testing requirements for EQ credit – Low Emitting materials which is applicable to LEED v4 BD+C & ID+C as well as LEED v4.1 O+M: Existing Buildings MR Purchasing – Option 2

Discuss the value of an IAQ management plan from construction through to operations and maintenance.

State the importance of selecting certified low-emitting products to control VOC emissions in the indoor environment and how this relates to EQ credit – Low Emitting materials which is applicable to LEED v4 BD+C & ID+C as well as LEED v4.1 O+M: Existing Buildings MR Purchasing – Option 2
