The Green Police Return, Round 2

A Review of Green Building Products and Systems: Green Washers Beware!


Attendees will hear their thoughts on products, process, and programs, revealing the good, the bad, and the ugly components in green building – all updated for 2016. Like Click and Clack, or Siskel and Ebert, or Pinky and the Brain; sometimes they agree, sometimes they don’t, but they are always entertaining.

Presented as a part of the CRAN Symposium 2016.

Learning objectives
