HPDs are used to communicate the health impacts of products to purchasing decision makers. HPDs are customer-facing documents that disclose the health risks and hazards of product ingredients.
While EPDs disclose environmental information, HPDs disclose information related to your products’ ingredients and their potential hazards. Our role is to provide HPDs that meet the requirements of LEED v4 and answer critical questions about the health impacts of the products you sell. We also support other forms of chemical transparency documentation including Declare, UL Product Lens, Cradle to Cradle Material Health Certificates, and customer specific chemical questionnaires.
WAP Sustainability provides clients with multiple chemical transparency support options including:
HPD and Declare Third Party Verification
For manufacturers with already completed Health Product Declarations or Declare Labels, WAP Sustainability can provide third party verification of those transparency documents individually or as a system. Third party verification helps building product manufacturers earn additional points in Google's Portico Health Material Tool, and help create more credible public disclosures.
Value Chain Chemical Management (VCCM®) Approach
WAP Sustainability recognizes that HPDs are not the only format of Chemical Transparency reporting a manufacturer may be asked to participate in. Reporting materials and ingredients via Cradle to Cradle Material Health Certificates, Declare Labels, Mindful Materials, Portico, Product LENS are all chemical transparency programs additional to the HPD. WAP Sustainability has developed a custom Software as a Service (SaaS) called the Value Chain Chemical Management (VCCM®) System to help manufacturers manage these requests.
Our proprietary approach aggregates chemical transparency requirements from over a two-dozen chemical transparency systems into one common reporting framework. WAP Sustainability assists manufacturers in the collection and management of chemical information from the Supply Chain to support chemical transparency reporting. The VCCM® system helps manufactures establish processes and procedures to collect and manage chemical transparency information to support faster chemical transparency reporting to meet market requests.
The entire VCCM® is verifiable and contributes LEED points under the MRc4 Option 3, Supply Chain Optimization Credit. Manufacturers interested in providing feedback to suppliers are able to take advantage of WAP Sustainability's Responsible Supplier™ Platform, our easy to understand chemical transparency and sustainability scorecard for the supply chain.
