Transparency: A Way to Inform Healthier Material Choices

There are numerous rating systems out there today attempting to clarify the chemical makeup of interior materials.  How do designers understand these systems and design and specify products without a chemical engineering degree?  In this session we will discuss how to navigate the world of material certifications and what transparency looks like today.  We will also delve into how transparency is changing the way we design and what that means for the Hospitality market.
