Issues of Controversy in Green Building Policy: Taking Action on Chemicals of Concern
January 28 @ 12 - 1 pm

GBA is partnering with ILFI and Greenwash Action to present this webinar series which will explore three hot topics in the world of advocacy. Join us online and learn about policy issues surrounding certified wood, chemicals of concern, and cycles of products in the three installments of this series!

For this session: One of the most important trends in green building in recent years has been growing market demand for transparency and avoidance of toxic chemicals in building materials. This webinar will provide a primer on chemicals of concern in the built environment, an overview of the tools that are driving the development of healthier building materials and will contrast the approaches of Living Building Challenge, LEED and Green Globes to this important issue. We will also explore how webinar participants can play a role in inspiring increased uptake of healthy materials through specification, contracts and other advocacy tools.
