Welcome! Elixir Environmental helps building product manufacturers get specified by developing Health Product Declarations (HPDs), Declare Labels, and LEED v4 documentation. Elixir Environmental also develops product information for mindful MATERIALS, WELL, CHPS, Transparency Catalog, and other platforms.
The Health Product Declaration (HPD) provides a standardized way of reporting the material contents of building products, and the health effects associated with these materials. Perkins + Will, Smith Group JJR, HKS, ZGF and other significant AEC firms encourage building product manufacturers to provide HPDs in order to be considered for product specification.
The Declare Label is a product transparency disclosure that identifies where a product comes from, what it’s made of, and where it goes at the end of its life. Declare Labels can contribute to the Living Building Challenge and LEED v4.
Is your product LEED certified? The USGBC doesn’t certify or endorse products. Building product manufacturers become flustered by the complicated requirements for LEED certification. Elixir Environmental can help you create LEED Product Documentation so that your product can get specified.
Elixir Environmental provides sustainability consulting services to building product manufacturers. We help our clients optimize their building products, increase ROI, and open the door for more specification opportunities.
The following videos include educational and instructional presentations about Health Product Declarations (HPDs), Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Declare Labels, LEED v4, and other sustainable topics. The videos are for building product manufacturers who want to learn how to develop HPDs and get specified on LEED v4 projects as well as design professionals wanting to know how to properly use HPDs for product selection.
Welcome design professionals, building product manufacturers, and fellow sustainability champions. We publish monthly articles to address questions about HPDs, LEED v4, Declare, WELL, and other green building topics. We hope this forum provides thoughtful discussions about how to transform our built environment for future generations.
We needed a partner that could assist us with both the evaluation and preparation of disclosure documents such as the HPD and Declare Label. In addition, Elixir Environmental provided guidance for our mindful Materials submissions and our Google Portico submissions. As a result of working with Elixir, we are confident that our documents are prepared accurately and to a high standard. Tara put National Gypsum’s interest and integrity at the top of her goals. Elixir continues to be a partner with National Gypsum as we continue to develop new transparency documents and evaluate programs where we can highlight our sustainability and transparency initiatives.
The team at Elixir Environmental has been our most important resource for LEED v4 and HPD guidance. Dr. Blank’s expertise has helped CEMCO successfully navigate the complicated waters of sustainability and transparency, giving our customers and end users the confidence in specifying CEMCO as their preferred source for cold-formed steel framing and metal lath products.
