Thank you for participating in the Portico initiative and for your leadership in transparency and disclosure. The original project sponsors have now completed their initiatives and Portico will be closed on May 31, 2019.
If you would like to save a copy of your data before that date for your own records, the Portico application has a print to PDF feature on the product profile for submitted product records.
If you are not already a Health Product Declaration Collaborative (HPD) member or have not used the Health Product Declaration to disclose your product information, we encourage you to explore their organization and tools at https://www.hpd-collaborative.org/. HPDs are quickly gaining in popularity and are the preferred disclosure standard among many of the tools and standards within architectural, specifier, and other product procurement teams, with over 4,600 HPD records published to date. Portico users who have established an API connection between Portico and HPD Builder may use the API to import your Portico records to HPD Builder.
Please contact us with any questions.
Portico is a curated product library of high-quality, actionable information about the transparency and healthfulness of building products. Project teams request, research, and select materials that support human and environmental health. The tool relies on product ingredient disclosures from industry-leading manufacturers and builds the critical mass needed to transform the marketplace with products optimized for human health.
Hazardous substances, clearly linked to harmful health impacts on people and the planet, are present in everyday building products and remain mostly unrestricted by the federal government. Consumers of building materials, including property owners, developers, architects, and others, are increasingly demanding healthier and safer options.
HBN created Portico in partnership with Google Real Estate and Workplace Services (REWS). Our founding partner base has grown to six organizations, representing multiple industry sectors and more than 100 million square feet of combined real estate. We are currently testing Portico with Google (REWS), Perkins + Will, Harvard, Georgia Tech, The Durst Organization, and MSR Design.
While the platform is currently closed to new tenant users, forward-thinking, socially responsible manufacturers are encouraged to join. In addition to advancing human and environmental health, participation offers practical business benefits, including:
- Reduced reporting burdens. Reach all platform partners with a single information request response.
- Amplified transparency. Portico syncs with the Health Product Declaration Collaborative, integrating the industry-supported product reporting standard, the Health Product Declaration (HPD).
- Aligning with the market. Reinforce industry standards in material health disclosure.
- Focused resources. Streamline the process of responding to requests about your product lines.
- Joining the conversation. Collaborate with commercial purchasers to address shared product goals.
Portico is for the innovators blazing a new trail. Together, we can create a future that enhances the health of people and the planet, and meet rapidly growing consumer demand at the same time.
