Industry News
 
   
Per NAPA: The green construction market is entering a new era with a focus on product transparency and measuring a product's impact on sustainability. As a result, green construction rating systems, such as LEED v4, Greenroads, and Envision are increasingly structuring credits that encourage the use of products with life-cycle information communicated through Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) or that demonstrate through life-cycle assessment (LCA) a reduced environmental impact.
