Product Description

We are exposed to over 80,000 chemicals in our daily lives, with varying degrees of safety and testing. Green building rating systems are increasingly taking note of the potential health and environmental risks associated with chemicals found in common building materials, and are taking steps to encourage projects to identify and select safer products. Join us to learn about chemicals of concern identified in the LEED and Living Building Challenge rating systems, what common products they are found in, potential risks, and safer alternatives.
