Author(s)

Barbara C. Lippiatt

Abstract

Identifying environmentally and economically balanced building products is no easy task. The National Institute of Standards and Technology Green Buildings Program began the Building for Environmental and Economic Sustainability (BEES) project in 1995 to facilitate the identification process. BEES is a systematic methodology implemented in decision support software for selecting building products that achieve the most appropriate balance between environmental and economic performance.
