Our built environment uses products and materials–we can’t get around that. We need walls, floors, roofs and furniture to build and fill our buildings. The evolution of products has come a long way and we continue to seek solutions and opportunities to create and use sustainable materials, especially for some of our toughest challenges–roofing, flooring, textiles. Join this session to learn more about the ways sustainability leaders are creating greener, healthier materials and how they are ensuring the life cycle of a product is environmentally responsible.

LEED Credit Spotlight: Material Ingredients Disclosure & Optimization

Aug 9, 3:30 - 4:30 pm ET

LEED v4/4.1 has a credit specifically focused on Material Health, the Material Ingredients Disclosure and Optimization Credit.
With the information tools now available to practitioners, it has become cost-effective and straightforward to do the work needed to make products and projects meet the requirements of the LEED MI credit, without needing to first become a material health expert. This presentation will address the capabilities that are available in 2023 that streamline and simplify screening products for the LEED MI credit and bring doing this within the reach of any manufacturer or project team. Learn how products can comply with the MI Credit requirements. Additionally, learn how the growth of material health disclosures, such as the HPD, has made it easy for project teams to find compliant products and qualify for this credit.

Case Study: Epic Cleantec Water Reuse Systems

Aug 10, 2:15 - 2:45 pm ET

Communities across the country are facing rising water and sewer rates and changing weather patterns that straining the already ailing water infrastructure – from water scarcity and extreme drought to storms and flooding across the U.S. To combat these water supply challenges, cities across the nation are looking to implement new water reuse programs that can help disproportionally impacted communities.

Epic’s emergence as a national leader in onsite water reuse with San Francisco’s first permitted and city-approved onsite greywater reuse operation in Related California's newly opened Fifteen Fifty, a 40-story residential high-rise building will be used as a learning tool in this program. This project is on track to reuse up to 2.5 million gallons of water annually, a significant reduction of the building’s water footprint and an important statement as California grapples with a prolonged period of drought.
