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.
