Breakfast Briefing: Living Product Challenge 101
August 22, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am EDT
Join GBA for a breakfast workshop to learn more about the Living Product Challenge!
Earlier this year, the International Living Future Institute (ILFI), in collaboration with Green Building Alliance, launched the Pittsburgh Living Product Hub. The primary goal of the Hub is to work with local manufacturers to retool existing products and create new products that can lead the industry in ingredient transparency, material health and regenerative design. To guide companies, the Hub will use the Living Product Challenge (LPC), ILFI’s aspirational framework for rethinking product design and manufacturing.
Join us for a breakfast workshop on August 22 to learn about the LPC certification program and how your company can get engaged in transforming products to maximize their positive social and environmental impact. The session will be led by Benson Gabler, who serves as the Pittsburgh Living Product Hub Manager.
