The ERG gives architects and others in the building industry a basis for comparing the environmental impact of building materials, products and systems. It provides a consistent format for assessing the environmental impacts of building materials from their original extraction and manufacture to their final disposal or reuse. The ERG was launched by the AIA in 1992 with funding from the EPA to create a simplified methodology for assessing the environmental impact of building materials, and as a vehicle for disseminating that information to the building community at large. The AIA Press has brought in Wiley as a publishing partner to improve its content, format, packaging and marketing.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This guide from the American Institute of Architects is intended to "help design professionals make environmentally informed choices when they select and specify building materials." Divided into three main sections, the guide begins with an overview of building projects that have used environmentally sensitive planning in their designs and shows the goals, strategies, and construction procedures employed by builders and architects. Application reports supply information such as the energy used, worker health, and the like, to compare the advantages of using materials such as drywall vs. plaster. Finally, more detailed data on the environmental impact of the manufacturing process for each building material is given. Presented in a very clear, straightforward format, consumers interested in making environmentally sensitive choices for their own homes will benefit greatly from this guide.
A practical reference for design professionals on the environmental aspects of building materials, produced by the American Institute of Architects and newly co-published with Wiley. With new page layouts, new typography, and restructured sections, this expanded edition presents information in three formats as materials reports, application reports, and project reports. Materials reports provide detailed environmental life-cycle profiles for building materials. Application reports, a new feature, present narrative and graphic information comparing material performance and environmental concerns within product categories. Project reports profile environmentally responsive building projects. Appendixes include the current ERG methodology, updated reference sources, and a new glossary. Annual updates are available. Looseleaf with tabbed sections in a three-ring binder. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
