Keeping Score: Engaging the Broader Market to Advance Industry Change

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Design industry leaders are marching toward innovative work with sustainable materials, and many manufacturers have quickly optimized their products to satisfy bleeding edge customers. But the greater industry lags behind these dedicated leaders, struggling to prioritize between new certifications or impact categories like human health, embodied carbon or social justice.

A new scoring methodology is inviting the broader market into the material revolution by boiling down existing product standards into simple, actionable scores. Professionals in manufacturing, architecture and academia will share how this methodology can propel our whole industry forward by making it easier to create and choose greener materials.

This session is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 1 LFA General credit
  • 1 AIA LU | HSW credit
