A. Reuse i. Building reuse (e.g., historic building reuse; renovation of abandoned or blighted building) ii. Material reuse (e.g., structural elements [floors, roof decking]; enclosure materials [skin, framing]; permanently installed interior elements [walls, doors, floor coverings, ceiling systems])
B. Life cycle impacts i. Life cycle assessment (e.g., quantify impacts; whole-building life cycle assessment; environmental attributes used in Environmental Product Declaration [EPD]; Product Category Rules [PCR]; design for flexibility) ii. Material attributes (e.g., bio-based; wood products; recycled content; local; Extended Producer Responsibility [EPR]; durability) iii. Human and ecological health impacts (e.g., raw material source and extraction practices; material ingredient reporting)
C. Waste i. Construction and demolition waste management (e.g., waste reduction; waste diversion goals; recycle and/ or salvage nonhazardous construction and demolition materials; waste management plan) ii. Operations and ongoing (e.g., waste reduction; storage and collection of recyclable materials [mixed paper, corrugated cardboard, glass, plastics, metals]; safe storage areas for batteries and mercurycontaining lamps)
D. Environmental concerns of materials (e.g., where materials came from; how they are used/exposures; where they might go/impacts)
