According to a recent AIA survey, 79% of Architects want to specify more sustainable materials, and 82% look to manufacturer websites as an information source, but only 59% are somewhat or very satisfied with what they find there. In addition, 59% still perceive sustainable products as too expensive. What needs to be done to address these challenges, and how will this change as the world emerges from a coronavirus pandemic? This panel discussion, with leading building product sustainability experts from Herman Miller, Tarkett and Saint-Gobain, will capture the manufacturer’s viewpoint around sustainable product purchasing, identify initiatives that address better information and transparency, debate the cost perception, and share expectations for the post-pandemic world.
