Green Build: Environmental Life Cycle Declarations Ready for Use

We couldn’t make it to the annual GreenBuild conference and expo in Chicago this year, but it looks like it is and probably was a great session. Including a panel dicussion on one of our favourite topics: environmental life cycle declarations. You know - those declarations that tell you the environmental impacts of a product, like a building material, over its life time (i.e. from the extraction of raw materials to the end-of-life waste management. They base the info on ISO 14040 life cycle assessment studies and are a great way of helping consumers be better informed about what they are purchasing and putting in their homes. Did any of you make it to this event? Please give us your thoughts below. Via: Scientific Certification Systems
