Debunking Product Transparency

The event is expired

As a manufacturer or building material supplier you should take product transparency seriously. Come learn why.

About this Event

Hello manufacturer, product representative, distributor or other professional in the building material supply chain.

  • Have you been asked by an architect, designer, specification writer or consultant to provide documentation about the ingredients in your product? Did they use the term ‘Red List Free’?
  • Have you been asked to remove certain ingredients from your products?
  • Have you tried to obtain information from your material/ingredient suppliers only to be told ‘no’?
  • Have you been frustrated with a lack of peer-to-peer support to help answer questions?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions above let me tell you are not alone. Come learn about product transparency labels from the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) Declare, Cradle -to-Cradle (C2C), the Healthy Products Declaration Collaborative (HPD), and a manufacturer about how transparency has transformed their business.
