Building Transparency, a nonprofit organization that provides open access data and tools to foster a better building future, today welcomes its latest partners, a diverse set of global leaders dedicated to improving material transparency and fostering low-carbon procurement decisions in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. Joining as both Lead Partners and Pilot Partners, these organizations join Building Transparency in prioritizing embodied carbon action as a key action to reduce global embodied carbon emissions and lessen the impact of climate change.

The new partners to join the roster of companies are:

  • Concrete Masonry and Hardscapes Association

  • GCP Applied Technologies
  • One Click LCA
  • Lamar Johnson Collaborative/Clayco
  • Lendlease
  • Tangible Materials

Additionally, several global leaders in technology, architecture and construction have recently renewed their Lead and Pilot Partnerships, continuing their endorsement of open-access data and tools and furthering their efforts to reduce embodied carbon in the built environment. These companies are:

  • Amazon
  • American Wood Council
  • Clark Construction
  • cove.tool
  • Google
  • Heidelberg Materials
  • HITT Contracting
  • LinkedIn
  • Microsoft
  • Perkins&Will
  • Skanska
  • Softwood Lumber Board
  • Turner Construction Company
  • WoodWorks



"Among our new and returning partners are some of the world's largest corporations, as well as leading manufacturers, architecture firms and building technology start-ups. Together, they reflect the importance of building decarbonization to leaders in tech, commerce and the AEC industry," shared Stacy Smedley, Executive Director of Building Transparency. "Each of our partners recognizes time is of the essence to reduce the 40% of carbon emissions created by the building industry. We are grateful for and encouraged by these organizations' passionate support of our mission to address embodied carbon's role in climate change and create a better future for the planet."

As partners, these organizations are driving the continued support and development of the Embodied Carbon in Construction Calculator (EC3), a free and easy-to-use tool that allows benchmarking, assessment and reductions in embodied carbon, and focuses on the upfront supply chain emissions of construction materials. Being a Building Transparency Pilot Partner enables companies to support material transparency while also improving carbon accounting efforts to make it easier to set and achieve emission reduction targets within built spaces. In addition to this, Lead Partners work closely with the nonprofit to inform and provide feedback on the EC3 tool and its development.
