Event Description

Title: Intersection between building materials, toxics, and climate change. 

Who would win in a tug of war? Team safer materials or team low carbon products? What if, instead of competing, these two powerhouses worked together? In our upcoming webinar, attendees will hear from experts about the key drivers of material health and embodied carbon using flooring products (carpet and resilient flooring) and drywall products as examples. We will translate those drivers into actionable guidance for project teams to select healthy, low carbon products.
