Building Wellness, PhDs and how HealthRATE makes choosing healthy products possible for A&D & Construction sectors

14 Mar 2019
Sustainability Summit

The demand to build healthier living and working environments has been expanding for some time - propelled by green building programs and significantly by consumer demand as well.

According to the Living LOHAS (Lifestyles Of Health And Sustainability Consumer Trends Report) Australian consumers are making product buying decisions based on their values and driving the market to deliver healthier and more sustainable products and services – a market demand that has escalated from $12 billion in 2007 to $30 billion in 2018 and is expected to nearly triple by 2021. The construction industry therefore is now expected by the market to understand and identify what they need to do to meet these specific demands for healthier buildings and to mitigate professional risks by pursuing product claims that are backed by a trusted, third party certification body to ensure that products are designed and manufactured to protect occupant health and promote their wellbeing.

Global Product Certification Specialist, Brett Hazlett, from the award winning, Type 1 ecolabel and product certification company Global GreenTag International - unpacks the signs to look out for to meet growing consumer needs for healthy products on construction projects. He shows how to use GreenTag’s PhD™ (Product Health Declaration™) that is formally recognised by the International WELL™ Building Standard and the certification body’s HealthRATE marks; as well as how these systems of certification align and comply with other building programs.

What the Australian construction industry is saying about Sydney Build...

  • The Perfect Hire team and I thought the expo was fantastic. There was a great mix of people walking through looking at the exhibitions and we have gained a lot of quality leads due to this. We did not hesitate to sign up for the following year when approached to do so.
    Perfect Hire
  • This expo has 100 percent given us very goods leads we could follow up on. This is the best form of marketing we’ve done so far. We’ve been able to connect with leads that are usually very difficult to get in contact with. We’re definitely coming back next year.
    High Exposure
  • The show has a good variety of content including conference, summit and the exhibition itself. We got some quality leads as well. We will definitely come again next year.
  • I just wanted to say to you and the team, great job on an excellent event. I'd been in years before and this one was by far the best. You had great traffic. I was actually surprised. I'm definitely interested in a bigger speaking role next year and I'll likely exhibit.
    Tradie Web Guys
