Sustainable Synergy: How Manufacturers and Scientists Can Collaborate

In this one-hour course our team explores how scientists can help building product manufacturers meet the challenges of LEED v4 MR credits. We discuss how scientists help manufacturers develop product declarations and documentation for LEED v4 projects. We review the obstacles of achieving the LEED v4 BD+C MR credit: Building Product Disclosure and Optimization – Material Ingredients. Finally, we examine free resources that can help manufacturers and AEC firms with LEED projects.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Describe the challenges that building product manufacturers may encounter contributing to LEED v4 BD+C Materials and Resources credits
  2. Review common LEED Materials and Resources product disclosures that AEC firms request from building product manufacturers
  3. Explain the challenges of meeting the LEED v4 BD+C MR credit: Building Product Disclosure and Optimization – Material Ingredients with a Health Product Declaration (HPD)
  4. Discuss free resources that can assist manufacturers with LEED v4 projects
