“As the demand for healthier buildings grows, it’s more important than ever to have accurate, reliable, and consistent information on building product health,” said Wendy Vittori, HPDC Executive Director. “With our 2024 membership leaders, HPDC is well-positioned to continue to expand material health best practices and help manufacturers and building design teams create a healthier built environment for all.”

The HPD Open Standard provides an industry-standard method for reporting building product ingredients and associated human and environmental health information. The resulting material health transparency enables both manufacturers and building professionals to make informed decisions about the products they make and use, leading to healthier, more sustainable buildings.
