The average American spends the vast majority of their time indoors. However, most people are not unaware of the numerous chemicals and materials they are exposed to on a daily basis, nor do they understand the hazards associated with these substances. As such, the need for a standardized way of reporting the health impacts of building materials is desperately needed. In this one-hour course, the design professional will become familiar with the Health Product Declaration (HPD), a material ingredient reporting standard developed under the guidance of the HPD Collaborative. We will explore how HPDs contribute to the creation of healthier buildings, how to read and interpret an HPD, and how the HPD can contribute to points in LEED v4.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. 1. Define the objective of the HPD
  2. 2. Discuss why the HPD is important for human health, and how it can contribute to healthier buildings
  3. 3. Explain how products with an HPD can contribute to points in LEED v4
  4. 4. Recognize the HPD format, and understand what constitutes a “compliant” HPD
  5. 5. Interpret the information presented in an HPD and appreciate how HPD can be used by design professionals
