The Easy Way to Select Healthier Building Products

Informed™ is HBN’s new online materials modeling tool that makes it simple to choose healthier building products.

Informed™ is backed by HBN’s decades of research on the health impacts of chemicals in building products across their life cycle and uses a simple color-based system to rank product types.

The Informed™ Product Explorer helps you find product material health information in minutes - not hours.
