The expanded and revised 6th edition of the GreenSpec® Directory of environmentally preferable building products contains nearly 2,000 listings, providing architects, building owners, and builders with the most complete source for green building product information.
The directory is published by Brattleboro, Vt.-based BuildingGreen Inc., and includes 1,997 product listings. Building-industry professionals use the book to identify and gather information on products that can help improve environmental performance and energy efficiency.
The criteria used to screen products for GreenSpec have been refined by the editors of Environmental Building News. These criteria are published in the new 6th edition, and they can be downloaded from the BuildingGreen.com Web site in the updated article “What Makes a Product Green?”
Among the new or refined criteria are products that reduce stormwater pollution, products that help noise control, and products that enhance community well-being.
