Codes/Standards and Science-Based Guidance for Sustainability
International Congress on Sustainability Science Engineering ICOSSE
Wednesday, August 12, 2009 - 1:30pm to 5:00pm
This session examines how sustainability can best be incorporated into standards which typically represent an agreed upon practice that is commonly used? Will codes and possible regulations be a driver or an obstacle for evolution and implementation of sustainable best practices? Topics of green certification and standard frameworks, materials and processes will be explored, along with the role of standard setting bodies from a national and international framework.
