PMTC Materials Summit @ Sustainable Building Week
Portland Materials Transparency Collaborative (PMTC) invites you to the “2020 Materials Summit”. This discussion is part of the 3rd Annual Portland Sustainable Building Week, October 12-23, 2020.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our event will be virtual this year. Join this discussion via Zoom from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PDT on October 16.
As designers, architects, manufacturers, and contractors, it is important to us that the materials used to create our buildings and the spaces we occupy, positively impact human health, the climate, the environment, and society. To show how important this is, design firms who are signatories of the the AIA Materials Pledge, have made a commitment to a making positive changes through their work, focusing on these 5 areas:
- Human Health
- Climate Health
- Ecosystem Health
- Social Health and Equity
- Circular Economy
The PMTC Materials Summit will be structured around these 5 topics with experts in each area coming together to elaborate on their area of expertise in the hopes of engaging, educating and inspiring positive change.
