Federal Way, WAWeyerhaeuser has awarded Athena Institute International a $60,000 grant to improve decision-making tools that can help reduce the environmental impacts of building. Athena Institute president Wayne Trusty said this grant will be used to update the Athena Impact Estimator for Buildings, the only system in North America that evaluates whole buildings based on internationally recognized life cycle assessment methodology.
This methodology can assess the environmental performance of materials, assemblies and structures over their entire lives, from extraction through manufacturing, transportation, installation, use, maintenance and disposal or recycling.
