A partnership consisting of Building Clean and HPN Select has been formed to help affordable housing owners source local building products. The partners will add the manufacturing location—city and state—to thousands of building products in the Select EcoGuide, a database that conveys the health and sustainability of materials used by nonprofit multifamily housing developers.
 
“Using locally manufactured products not only supports local economies and grows jobs, but decreases the environmental impact of these projects,” said Lauren Asplen, director of healthy sustainability programs at the BlueGreen Alliance Foundation, in a news release. “We are thrilled to be partnering with some of the best nonprofit developers in the nation.”
 
BuildingClean.org is an initiative of the BlueGreen Alliance Foundation. Its database of healthier energy efficient products is designed to help architects and designers, consumers, contractors and developers, and manufacturers find products to help them capture the benefits of energy efficiency retrofits. HPN Select is a Housing Partnership Network social enterprise.
