Location: Room 323, David L Lawrence Convention Center

This summit is a key opportunity to come together to break down industry siloes that prevent progress towards a future with Healthy Materials for Everyone. If you’re an architect, a specifier, a contractor, an engineer, a chemist, a manufacturer, an owner, or anyone else that is deeply committed to changing the future of the materials market—we want you in the room.

This is the only convening summit of its type. Come prepared to engage in deep discussion. We’ll be identifying initiatives across all industries, finding opportunities for collaboration, and creating individual commitments to ensure progress at all scales.

Our goal for these summits is nothing less than to find a common vision for where we need to head as an ecosystem of stakeholders and ensure the implementation of next steps.

There are incredible initiatives going on in so many companies, firms, and across industries, but we don’t get the chance to sit down and discuss and discuss face to face what they mean for holistic progress.

After a brief opening introduction to frame the day by AIA, the Living Product 50 manufacturers, and ILFI, there will be 3 full hours of guided discussion designed increase common awareness of action and find hotspots of collaboration that can get us all further, faster.

It’s time to close the loop on transparency and healthy materials so that investment in sustainability, is sustainable, and we need everyone to be a part of that conversation. Join us.
