Materials Summit: Finding connections in holistic sustainability through embodied carbon and human health​

Each year Green Building United hosts a day-long summit focused on health and wellness in the built environment. This year we are expanding beyond human wellbeing to incorporate environmental health as it relates to embodied carbon.

The summit is geared toward anyone interested in knowing more about the role materials play in creating healthier, greener buildings. There will be presentations and a call for collaboration from both Materials Carbon Action Network (MaterialsCAN) and the Mindful MATERIALS Manufacturer Group.

The Materials summit will include morning coffee, 2 presentations each by MaterialsCAN and mM Manufacturer Group, lunch in the Knoll showroom, and a happy hour.
