When it comes to building products in the ever-evolving field of sustainable design and construction, the industry is moving beyond simple tallies of things like recycled content and certified wood products. While still valuable measures, they are taking a back seat to declarations of the products’ impact on planetary and human health. Said another way, the design community is now expecting a much more encompassing view of a product’s sustainability.
Taking a cue from Europe, America is turning an analytical eye to the life cycle impacts of products through Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). Concerns over chemicals used in the millions of products going into buildings are driving the creation of Health Product Declaration (HPDs) in order to inventory substances and potential impacts on human health.
As if to cement their place in the evolution of sustainability, the USGBC codified EPDs and HPDs as credit worthy in its recently ratified Version 4 rating systems. Endorsement of these Declarations by the world’s leading sustainable building organization is testimony to the documents’ status as the go-to “bibles” on product content and impacts. This course discusses how we got here, and what lies ahead.
- Explore the history and background of the EPA’s Toxic Substance Control Act (TCSA), Red Lists, and the rise of the Transparency Movement.
- Be able to define the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) creation process, and identify the EPD’s key measurements.
- Be able to define the Health Product Declaration (HPD) creation process, identify the HPD’s key measurements, and contrast the HPD to the EPD.
- Master how these Declarations are a key component of the Material & Resource credit structure in the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® v4 rating system.
