Criticism from @HBNPharos of new #LEED Building Material Human Hazard & Exposure Assessment Pilot Credit

: The latest move may be their most egregious greenwash move yet. The Building Material Human Hazard & Exposure Assessment Credi t they designed and pushed in to LEED sounds good at first glance. A validated hazard and exposure assessment could give designers the information they need to prioritize the avoidance of hazards to which occupants are most exposed, and address nagging questions about what is released from products. Unfortunately, that is not what the ACC’s Risk Credit does. As described above, and in more detail in our Signal blog: ACC Pits Risk Assessment Against Right to Know in New LEED Credit , The ACC Risk Credit creates a murky, ill-defined assessment process ripe for abuse and effectively keeps all information about product contents, their hazards, and the potential for exposure out of the hands of design teams.
