April 18 In-Depth Seminar:
Materials Sustainability Standards: A Comparative Analysis
In recent years, the number of certifications, “eco-labels,” and standards relating to the sustainability and ecological impact of building materials -materials sustainability standards (MSS)undefinedhave grown at a rapid pace. The Materials Resource Center (MRC), an initiative at Washington University’s Sam Fox School, seeks to provide impartial and rigorous analysis of MSS. Presenters Hannah Roth, Charles McManis, and Meghan Lewis will discuss this pilot project and it’s goal to create a model for analysis of eco-labels and certifications which identifies what is being monitored and measured and to what depth those measurements go. The results of their analysis will be encoded in a searchable, user-friendly data set that provides a clear basis for comparison among different MSS.
