About the Course:
This course helps designers cut through the noise and focus on two key frameworks for evaluating architectural product sustainability. First, the International Living Future Institute has provided a fretwork for evaluating the toxicity of products with its Declare Label. Second, Environmental Product Declarations have become the gold standard in measuring the carbon footprint of products. Attendees will learn how to leverage these frameworks to design healthier and more environmentally friendly spaces.
