With the global drive towards decarbonisation, the buildings materials sector must ensure its supply chain is utilising low impact, sustainable materials that comply with circular economy principles. But what does this mean in practice and what initiatives are being implemented to ensure the use of environmentally and socially responsible products? How can we adopt a holistic approach to the design, procurement and use of these materials across every new and existing project?


Following on from the launch of the Responsible Products Calculator last October,  this deep dive learning session will explore the responsible products framework guidelines along with a series of case studies and discussions that address the critical role that products and materials play in achieving sustainability goals.

 

Join our industry leaders as they examine the role of the responsible products in the built environment and the shifting demand as we edge closer to our net zero targets.


Discussion areas include:

  • Understanding the responsible products framework and new calculator tool
  • What are the tools and strategies to facilitate the selection of responsible products?
  • How to anticipate and avoid product substitution and ensure specified products are used through the lifecycle of a project?
  • Understanding the good from the bad when it comes to EPDs
  • What are the greatest drivers for change and what role does the use of responsible products play here?
  • Unpacking legislative changes and the digital materials passport

Hear from industry experts including:

Jonas Bengtsson, Founder & Global CEO, Edge Impact
Sophi MacMillan, Project Director - Resiloop, Australian Resilient Flooring Association
Nicole Sullivan, Impact Director, thinkstep-ANZ
• Steve Mitchell, Director, EPD Australasia
Katherine Featherstone, Senior Manager, Responsible Products, Green Building Council of Australia
