Record Number of HPDs Published Using HPDC’s Latest HPD Builder Version 2.2.
Since launching the fully implemented HPD Open Standard Version 2.2 six weeks ago, 59 manufacturers have published a record breaking 479 new HPDs. Thank you to all the manufacturers who have so rapidly supported the latest revision. Your efforts have brought the number of published HPDs over the 6,500 mark. This represents an increase of 50% in publicly-available, Version 2 generation HPDs, in just the last year. These HPDs provide comprehensive product content and associated health information for over 20,000 building products.
One of the most important innovations in HPD Builder 2.2 is the addition of the Supplier HPD Extension, which greatly simplifies the work of both manufacturers and their suppliers to create HPD reports.
Rachel Berman, Sustainability Program Manager at Mecho Shades and co-chair of the HPDC Supply Chain Technical Sub-Group said, “Enabling my suppliers to easily control disclosure of their confidential business information is a wonderful option, that should help simplify and speed up our transparency work.”
First released in 2012, the HPD Open Standard is harmonized with reporting for leading sustainability certification systems for buildings, including LEED and WELL, and for building products, such as Cradle to Cradle Certified™, Declare, GreenScreen Certified™ and BIFMA LEVEL®. Once published in the HPD Public Repository, manufacturer HPDs are publicly available for free to A+D firms and project teams. HPD data is also electronically transmitted to online product libraries, including mindful MATERIALS, Ecomedes and Sustainable Minds. Manufacturers can also transfer information between their HPD Builder, Toxnot and Declare accounts using the HPD Builder API.
