Join the USGBC-Illinois North/Northwest IL Branch for Transparency and Authenticity: Understanding Sustainability Labels and Certifications (Approved for 1.5 hrs GBCI and 1.0 AIA LU|HSW|SD hours).

In the world of sustainability, this need for authenticity, credibility and truth often is mitigated by claims validation and certification. The emergence of over 400 ecolabels has left many  purchasers confused about the credibility of environmental and sustainability claims.  However, the combination of certifications with transparency based disclosure tools such as Environmental Product Declarations give specifiers and purchasers confidence in their buying decisions. Confidence that the claims on which they are basing their purchases and the companies they support align with their values and meet project requirements.

Join us as we navigate the landscape of sustainability certifications and explain the drivers bringing Environmental Product Declarations to the forefront. Gather what you need to know to specify green products and tell an authentic story of true environmental leadership.

5:30 PM - 6:00 PM - Registration and Networking
