- Consistency – harmonizing product transparency and optimization programs
- Research – determining the effects of materials on health
- Adoption – understanding where opportunities and challenges are for increasing the disclosure of ingredient profiles
- Improve the indoor environment from a human health perspective
- Reduce barriers to materials transparency
- Improve the understanding of health impacts of building materials
- Bring materials transparency and product optimization into the mainstream
The next step in achieving healthy, green buildings is through a harmonious relationship between material transparency and a scientific understanding of the ingredients of said materials. In creating this relationship, it will be easier to foresee and reduce any potential health impacts in order to build a safer and more environmentally friendly structure.
