“Just tell me everything that is in your product and the associated hazards with it,” said Jennifer Atlee, Technical Liaison, Health Product Declaration Collaborative at the 2014 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, describing what designers want from building manufacturers.

Atlee was part of the GAF Spotlight Series and spoke on “Transparency: Q&A on HPD 2.0.”  She explained what Health Product Declaration (HPD) is, where it came from and why it was necessary to start declaring product content in materials.  She also answered many questions from the audience attending GAF’s Greenbuild session.
