Product Details

Working with technical and advocacy industry volunteers, the National Glass Association, glass.org, developed a document to help industry companies and their customers understand the various methods of calculating environmental impact and life cycle for building materials. The informational graphic notes the steps of building material production, from sourcing to manufacturing, fabrication, use and deconstruction. Further, it notes steps of the process that are included in the three primary methods of measuring environmental impact: cradle to cradle, cradle to grave, and cradle to gate.

“There is quite a bit of confusion in the market when it comes to determining the environmental impact of building materials. This graphic is intended to clear up that confusion for our industry and for our customers,” says Stanley Yee, façade design and construction specialist, high performance building, Dow Silicones Corp., dow.com.
