Overview:

Forbo Flooring Systems has been a leader in sustainability for decades, and what we have learned over the years is that health matters, and issues of human health and the environment cannot be separated when discussing sustainable development. Full Transparency is a 1 hour CEU that explains the importance of “full transparency” when selecting building materials, what to look for and what questions to ask manufacturers.

Based on Forbo’s industry leading Sustain Health Brochure, this CEU gives an overview of issues related to product transparency by defining Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), and Health Product Declarations (HPD). The impact categories included in the standard EPD while be discussed as will the missing elements of human toxicity and eco-toxicity.

Participants will understand the importance of requesting full transparency when specifying building products.

This CEU earns:

  • one AIA/CES HSW Learning Unit
  • one GBCI CE Hour for LEED Credential Maintenance

The test at the end of the CEU needs to be taken and passed to receive credit. Arch Record processes the credit; you will have no paperwork to submit.
