The Health Product Declaration Collaborative (HPDC) recently announced the appointment of Dennis Wilson, director of Sustainability, Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) at Saint-Gobain in North America, as a member of its board of directors. Wilson was appointed by the HPDC board in March 2019, pursuant to the HPDC bylaws, to fill the manufacturer-designated seat that was vacated as of December 31, 2018. He will serve for the remaining term of this vacated seat, from April 1, 2019, through December 31, 2019.
As director of Sustainability and EHS for Saint-Gobain, Wilson is responsible for overall corporate sustainability, product stewardship, and EHS programs in North America. He has also served in leadership roles within the broader transparency and material health community over the past decade, including the HPDC Manufacturer Advisory Panel, and is currently a member of the U.S. Green Building Council LEED Material Resources TAG. Saint-Gobain has been a general member of HPDC since 2015.
“As a leader in the manufacturing industry, Saint-Gobain is constantly looking to collaborate with organizations like HPDC that share our commitment to building material transparency and driving innovation throughout every aspect of the supply chain,” Wilson said. “It is truly humbling to have the honor to serve on HPDC’s Board of Directors to help set the overall strategic direction for an organization with a mission that truly reflects our company’s brand values.”
“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Dennis Wilson to the HPDC Board of Directors,” said Wendy Vittori, HPDC executive director. “Adoption of the HPD Open Standard is growing very rapidly, including more and more companies based outside North America. In addition to understanding what is involved in introducing and scaling new sustainability practices within a large manufacturer, as industry leaders, Dennis and Saint-Gobain bring to our Board a welcome perspective on the need for global harmonization using industry standards.”
The HPDC board of directors oversees the business and affairs of the organization and its members.
