Transparency and Product Disclosure Grows

Gina Ciganik | July 2018 | Newsletter

To know better, we need to understand what chemicals and materials are in our products, and the health hazards associated with them. Not that many years ago, it was nearly impossible to obtain this type of information. Fortunately, transparency leaders are emerging within product manufacturers and their supply chains.

If you want to know what is in a building product, search the Health Product Declaration Collaboration’s (HPDC) public repository of Health Product Declarations (HPD) that has grown to approximately 4,000 product disclosures. If you don’t find a specific product declaration there, ask your manufacturer to create one.

We’re grateful for the good work of our partner, HPDC, all the collaboration members, and the manufacturers who have chosen to share their product information. Thank you!
