2017 Materials Matter – Tools of the Trade: Assessment + Implementation
Session 3 of the Materials Matter series, Tools of the Trade: Assessment + Implementation, builds on the knowledge gained during the first two sessions by diving into tools used to communicate environmental and human health impacts of materials. It includes demonstrations of key tools and context for determining the right tool to use in practice. The first half focuses on applying life-cycle assessment to evaluate environmental impacts, and the second half demonstrates common tools used to report material and product ingredients that could impact human health, and provides a forum for participants to compare tools and ask questions.
Materials Matter is co-presented by Puget Sound Chapter CSI.
Note: Registration for Materials Matter is for the complete 5-session* series.
