The Construction Industry's Evolution in Evaluating and Selecting Better Building Materials
The group's collective vision is a world in which healthy building materials— products whose manufacturers provide full ingredient disclosure and are committed to continued optimization and innovation— become the industry standard rather than the exception. Getting there requires a holistic understanding of building products and their impacts on human, environmental, social, and ecosystem health. Even more, this ambitious goal necessitates utilizing a powerful common voice and shared practices to affect industry-wide progress.
The LP50 members are not only committed to leading by example; they are working to engage with and educate other members of the value chain: design professionals, contractors, suppliers, and our own teams. Widening the circle and closing the loop on meaningful action is the key to accelerated market transformation.
