ABOUT THE EVENT
A Workshop on Sustainability Standards and Methods: "A State of the Union" will be held Monday, October 21, 2013. Sponsored by ASTM Committee E60 on Sustainability, the workshop will be held at the Hyatt Jacksonville in Jacksonville, Florida, in conjunction with the October standards development meetings of the committee.
The number of standardization documents pertaining to sustainability has grown significantly over the past several years. Not only has ASTM, through E60 as well as other committees created such documents, but many other standards and government organizations have been involved in this process. In this flurry of activity, many topics may have been addressed more than once, and some areas have been left aside. Through an overview of activity going on with organizations aside from and including ASTM, areas of excessive overlap as well as areas of need will become apparent, stimulating conversation and thought on possible new standards work. This will also serve as a means for those interested in sustainability related standards to become familiar with what is available, pertinence, etc.
This full-day workshop will encompass two major components:
- Sustainability standards relative to construction and buildings/building products.
- Sustainability standards relative to other industries, products, etc.
It will encompass a review of pertinent standards and similar works by other bodies, followed by discussions on how organizations can work together in this growing field, ASTM's role, idea generation on new standards, etc.

- Anyone with interest in sustainability standards, guides, practices and codes.
