What Are HPDs?
Health Product Declarations (HPDs) are an important tool for designers and architects to specify building materials and products that are eco-friendly and low-emitting for LEED and other green building projects. HPDs were created to increase transparency and to disclose the human and environmental health impacts of ingredients and materials. Projects that are pursuing LEED, WELL, Living Building Challenge or other certification programs can use HPDs to report materials that lend to different credits. HPDs are an essential tool for disclosing product information to work towards a more sustainable future of building and manufacturing.
Publishing these HPDs are a part of the company's core values of sustainability and transparency. Christina Lubarsky, Marketing Manager for Anthology Woods, describes that "green building is the future of architecture and construction, and our reclaimed wood paneling and flooring products fit perfectly into this overall trend towards using more sustainable building materials." Publishing the HPDs, she says, helps designers and architects specify materials more easily for green building programs. "We want to make it as easy as possible for designers and architects to use our reclaimed and sustainable wood products for their projects, and we are here to help with their vision."
To view the published HPDs, viewers can search the HPD Public Repository, which is a pubic database for sharing published HPDs for all types of building materials. Readers can also find the Anthology Woods HPDs on the corresponding product pages on the Anthology Woods website.
