Las Vegas Design Center webinar addresses product sustainability

International Market Centers (IMC) announced that the February installment of Las Vegas Design Center’s (LVDC) monthly First Friday webinar series will address sustainability in product manufacturing. Participants in the free Feb. 5 session will receive 0.1 CEU credits.

“This program will provide insight about the importance of transparency when it comes to the manufacturing and use of sustainable products,” said LVDC General Manager Cain Brodie. “With so much focus these days on creating healthy, sustainable interiors, the discussion also will help designers understand and embrace LEED V4 and other healthy building standards.”

The February webinar, titled Trace It Back: A Course in Transparency, provides an overview of materials transparency and how it relates to green building and socially and environmentally responsible manufacturing. Participants will learn about product life cycles, associated health and environmental impacts and how to use transparency to determine best material choices for a healthier business environment.

The webinar will be presented by Mike Johnson, director of sustainability for 3form, a leading manufacturer of award-winning, sustainable materials and architectural hardware solutions for the architecture and design industry. The 90-minute session is from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. (PT) on Friday, Feb. 5. For information and registration, go to https://imcenters.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ArwMVvStS2SdxMC_mte5ww.

The next “First Friday” session will be on Friday, March 5.
