Event Description

Join Illinois Green and the Chicago Living Future Collaborative for a panel discussion focused on driving consistent demand for healthy, high performing materials on building projects. 

Speakers will discuss how clients can value and prioritize healthy and high performing materials for their projects; what is driving manufacturers to eliminate Red List Chemicals from their product lines; and how industry partners should be working together to accelerate uptake of transparent materials on ALL projects.
