Shining Light on EPDs - Comparing the Environmental Performance of Building Products

FREE

Over the past few years, demand for tools like Environmental Product Declarations has been growing among the green building industry. Primarily intended for a specialized audience, life cycle assessments and their results displayed in standardized documents named EPDs are out in the open for everyone to see. However, EPDs are not mere documentation and are very technical. Green Building Programs, such as LEED, requiring EPDs for credit achievement have forced unspecialized professionals to understand it. This course is intended to give you the tools you need to get your head around EPDs and be able to compare them if needed.

Credits: 1 AIA HSW + 1 USGBC/GBCI + 1 LEED SPECIFIC BD+C, ID+C, GA + 1 AIBC, 1 AANB, 1 NSAA, 1 ALBNL Core LU + 1 AAA Structured LU

Length: 1h
