Common Ground, Consensus Building and Continual Improvement: International Standards and Sustainable Building

Editor(s): Alison Kinn Bennett, Dru Meadows

Thirteen peer-reviewed papers examine current and developing sustainable building and product standards for manufacturers, designers, retailers, the general public, and government regulators.

The key objectives for a high performance building include: accessibility, aesthetics, cost effectiveness, functionality, historic preservation, security, safety, and sustainability. This new ASTM publication helps to demonstrate that sustainable building standards are at the forefront of high performance building objectives. They help define environmental preferability; life cycle assessment; and chemicals of concern, while balancing environmental, economic, and social considerations.
