This summit has been generously underwritten by the following sponsors:
Superior Essex, GAF, Rockwool, Kingspan, Construction Specialties and Valspar

The past year has seen incredible action from both the A+D and Manufacturing communities in making commitments to a future with healthy buildings and materials for everyone. This summit captures that momentum by providing a space to share, discuss and collaborate to break down industry silos and shape the future of materials in the built environment.

This summit requires a high level of industry knowledge and is intended primarily for companies that have signed onto the recent LP50 Letter or the A+D Materials Pledge, as well as those deeply engaged or interested in joining this collaborative movement to transform the materials economy. The majority of time will be devoted to deep discussion and facilitated collaboration so that all participants leave with new partnerships and clear next steps. Facilitated discussion will be followed by a Happy Hour to allow for continued informal conversation.

It’s time to close the loop on transparency and healthy materials and we need everyone to be a part of that conversation. Join us!
