  • HHI Series: Health Product Declaration - A Consistent Language for Product Ingredient Reporting

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 07/15/2014

    Recorded on 7/16/14 - The Health Product Declaration (HPD) is an objective tool for the accurate reporting of product contents and how each ingredient relates to the bigger picture for human and ecological health. It increases the transparency and accuracy of product content and associated health information by ensuring that they are reported in a consistent manner.

    Session Description 

    The Health Product Declaration (HPD) is an objective tool for the accurate reporting of product contents and how each ingredient relates to the bigger picture for human and ecological health. It increases the transparency and accuracy of product content and associated health information by ensuring that they are reported in a consistent manner. The HPD framework can assist designers, specifiers, building owners and occupants to refine the material selection process during design and material, finish and furniture selections to move toward healthier buildings and communities. This session is an opportunity for attendees to learn about the HPD’s simplified method to inventory ingredients and their health impacts. We will also discuss how the HPD creates a common language that is integrated into building certification systems, product labels, and product assessments. By the end of the session, attendees will have a straightforward format to guide conversations between manufacturers and consumers as well as self-directed research, and a deeper understanding of the critical importance of transparency as a contributing factor for the ultimate success of the building industry.

    Learning Objectives

    • Explain the Health Product Declaration: how it was developed, why it is needed in the marketplace, and who are championing its use.
    • Understand the context of the building materials ecosystem and the correlation between building products and human health.
    • Interpret the significance of product ingredient reporting to improve the specification process and refine the next generation of available products.
    • Identify building rating systems, product certifications, and product labels that are harmonizing with the Health Product Declaration.
