Health Product Declaration
Health Product Declaration® (HPD) Collaborative is a not-for-profit, member association with more than 360 members.
These members represent the full spectrum of the building industry: architects, designers, building owners, consultants, manufacturers, information systems, and researchers, who share a common purpose: to improve the material health and transparency of information in buildings and the environment.
A surge of legislation, development of standards and consumer awareness has increased the need for companies to demonstrate innovation in design, transparency and reporting for their products and packaging. Intertek’s team of sustainability experts support companies as they navigate issues of compliance, efficiency and management in their sustainability efforts.
The HPD Open Standard is a standardized specification for the accurate, consistent, and verifiable reporting of product contents and related health information for products used in the built environment.
More than 800 manufacturers are currently utilizing HPDs to deliver material transparency data on more than 40,000 goods, giving building product manufacturers and AECO practitioners convenient access to detailed content information about building product materials.
