Learn the Ins and Outs of San Francisco's Groundbreaking New Carpet Regulation

May 22, 11:00 am PDT

Join a live webinar to learn more about the City and County of San Francisco's sustainability and material health goals and how they are translating those into meaningful criteria for product purchasing.

The panel discussion will focus specifically on a new, first-of-its-kind regulation for carpet and the extensive investigation into current materials research and best practices that preceded it. Hosted by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.

Representatives from the City will share lessons learned in defining criteria, determining what industry certifications and/or labels are available to demonstrate achievement in those areas, and ultimately, creating product lists.

This session is applicable to anyone writing or working with materials specs.

Approval pending for 1.0 general GBCI CE.
