Recorded Thursday, September 22, 2 – 3:00pm ET
Industry associations: Copper Development (CDA) & Polyisocyanurate Insulation Manufacturers (PIMA)
Industry associations play important roles in providing a voice for the industry when it comes to regulations and new legislation, networking opportunities among competitors, and tools such as best practices. Members share information, discuss issues, develop standards and establish rules for best practice.
Building materials associations have been taking the lead on telling the environmental performance and material health stories for their industries. Industry disclosures provide MFRs a best practice tool they otherwise may not be able to create on their own and that can also establish benchmarks for product-specific comparisons.
Join us to learn about
- PIMA's four industry average EPDs that document the positive environmental attributes of polyiso, including low embodied energy and low global warming potential (GWP), reflecting the industry’s long-standing use of low-GWP, non-ozone depleting blowing agents
- CDA's ten industry standards-based HPDs that cover products in 11 MasterFormat® divisions and 67 sections and why copper is critical to a greener and healthier building
