Event Details

LEED is continuing to evolve to encourage the development of inherently safer building materials. Learn about emerging science on the toxicants in building materials and their impact on human health. This session focuses on how to keep ahead of the hazards with tools that help your project teams efficiently identify and avoid a wide range of toxicants in building materials.
