Event Details

As part of our policy efforts, the Institute has partnered with Greenwash Action to develop a suite of advocacy trainings for our global network. Together we invite you to take part in a series of webinars that lay the foundation for your local policy efforts by exploring three hot topics in the advocacy world: 

July 23rd, 9-10am PST: You Are What You Breathe: Taking Action on Chemicals of Concern – 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. 

 

Learning Objectives

 

  1. Outline the history of political debate that surrounds ingredient disclosure of building materials and emerging trends of toxic chemical avoidance within the green building industry.
  2. Explain how various green building certifications are driving healthy material specification with a particular focus on LEED® and the Living Building Challenge, including its related Declare label.
  3. Identify techniques that practitioners can use to incorporate healthy materials into Living Building Challenge and other sustainable building projects.
  4. Discuss how participants can play a role in promoting market uptake of ingredient transparency through specification and other advocacy tools.
