Promote material transparency across building material and product supply chain.
Growing scientific and public concern over chemical exposure has prompted the introduction of a number of screening and disclosure tools to help differentiate safer ingredients and products. Labels that promote material ingredient disclosure encourage supply chain transparency and work to bridge the information gap between manufacturers and users. Further, promoting awareness of and education on material ingredient content through product labeling can help enable informed decision making.
