    Seminar: Making Smarter Sustainable Product Selections (2 IDCEC hours + HSW, 2 GBCI, 2 AIA)

    Level - Basic

    While sustainable design is now a familiar concept to interior designers and to the public, clients are often reluctant to use 'green' building products and materials. It is critical that interior designers understand the potential environmental impact of these materials, and are able to advise their clients on making smarter product selection decisions.

    Attend this two-hour seminar to learn more about the impact of the newest LEED rating program Version 4, on the BD&C and ID&C rating system through the analysis of credits and rating guides, as well as third-party certifications and real-life examples.

    The second hour of the session will explore products in the sustainable toolkit including IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) and EPDs (Environmental Product Declaration) as well as other types of certifications.
