Material Health – Sustainable Architecture Awareness Series Part I

Beth Pearcy, AIA, CPCH, LEED AP BD+C, leader of Amenta Emma’s Sustainability team and co-chair of the BSA Committee on the Environment, will be sharing her knowledge and some of AE’s Sustainability practices throughout the month of April.

“Did you know that most Americans spend 90% of their time indoors? That’s why we think that making your space great is so important! Indoor air quality can impact human health, comfort, wellbeing, and productivity. As part of our commitment to sustainability, we have eliminated materials from our product library that contain ingredients that have been linked to negative health effects. Our sustainability team has created a simple chart to evaluate materials on material health and environmental impact based on various product evaluation systems. We use matching labels in our product libraries so we can immediately understand a products impact. Making sure that building occupants is essential to creating great places and central to our mission!”
