Who we are

    There is still time to register for the Environmental Law Institute's free public Webinar on "Buy Clean" construction policies and their requirement for EPDs - Wednesday, Feb 1 at Noon ET.

    "Buy Clean" regulations will impact everyone in the building and infrastructure design and construction industries. It's all about embodied carbon, and will be regulated by Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs).

    Ken Berlin, Senior Fellow, Global Energy Center, Atlantic Council, Fatou Jabbie, BSc, MSc, LEED AP BDC, CEO and Founder, USL Technology Inc., Chris Kardish, Industrial Fellow, Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, and Keith Killpack, Technical Director, Environmental Certification Services, SCS Global Service, make a great panel. And I am delighted to be the moderator.

    Learn about new policies in the pipeline, EPDs, and potential sources for funding. Feb 1 at Noon ET.
