SCOPE OF REPORT
The scope of this report includes the U.S. market for building products that meet its definition of green, that is, those that are:
Made from salvaged, recycled or agricultural waste content.
Manufactured with resource-efficient, environmentally friendly processes (e.g., conserve water/energy, minimize pollutants and process wastes).
Derived from rapidly renewable resources (e.g., fast-growth wood).
Beneficial to the built environment (e.g., conserve energy, remove indoor pollutants).
Recyclable at the end of their life.
In general, coverage is limited to building products that meet one of these criteria and are at least neutral with respect to the other three (e.g., wood particle board is generally not included because it is made from recycled/waste materials but is subject to potentially harmful outgassing).
The report format includes the following major elements:
Types of green building technologies.
End users and applications.
Manufacturers and related service providers.
Public policy dimensions and green initiatives.
U.S. trends in the market for green building technologies by technology, product type, application and geographical region, 2013 to 2019.
