The second edition of "ASTM International Standards on Sustainability in Buildings" is now available on CD-ROM. The compilation, which includes 111 standards, addresses environmental problems and challenges related to the design, construction, and operation of environmentally sound and resource-efficient sustainable buildings.

The standards will assist federal and state agencies in complying with federal mandates that call for environmentally preferable products, energy efficiency, and sustainable buildings. The compendium covers building materials, performance of wetlands, and general principles for life cycle assessment, as well as sustainable design, construction, and operation of buildings.
