The Human Health + Materials Summit is the materials industry’s leadership summit. The summit will bring together thought leaders from the world’s premier sustainable product manufacturers, as well as trend-setting specifiers that are shaping the future of product demand. This summit will include updates on Declare and the Living Product Challenge, and dive into how these programs and other transparency tools are changing specification of healthy products on a large scale.

We will first discuss updates to the programs and discuss how the approach to material health has evolved over time and introduce new tools for scaling materials petal certification in LBC. Speakers will then discuss the false choice between human health and green buildings, dive into the process and outcomes of material health optimization in the Living Product Challenge, and discuss tools and databases that are allowing project teams to scale the material petal for large commercial projects and corporate sustainable purchasing.

NOTE: Living Future 18 pre-conference workshops, summits and tours are open to both conference attendees looking to add onto their experience and non-conference attendees seeking to attend.

Learning Objectives

Participants in the summit will not only learn how to apply the principles of Declare and the Living Product Challenge to their product and projects, they will have the opportunity to collaborate with industry leaders to shape the future of materials.
