Many certifications and transparency declarations reference multiple products. mindful MATERIALS makes it feasible to use these declarations in practice by linking HPDs, Declare labels, C2C certifications, and other documents to specific products.”

The challenge

 

The solution

 

The change

Manufacturers need to share product information, certifications, declarations and test reports, in a standard format, effectively and efficiently across the global building industry. Project teams need access to a multitude of product options, with sustainability attributes, in a single location.

 

The mindful MATERIALS Library  is a multi-stakeholder initiative developed by the building industry for the building industry, providing a common platform to access and clearly communicate transparency and optimization information for building products. mindful MATERIALS is NOT another certification. It is a FREE, brand-agnostic product library, which allows project teams and industry professionals to search for a multitude of relevant, qualified products.

Manufacturers showcasing products in the mindful MATERIALS digital Library is facilitated by GIGA’s platform Origin and a team of industry product reviewers.  Manufacturers manage all product information directly in a free Origin account, connect to or upload relevant integrated certification and disclosure documents for each product, then submit for review and admission to the Library. The end result provides industry users with direct, free access to building products that meet a sustainability criteria baseline.

 

mindful MATERIALS is transforming the way products are selected.  mindful MATERIALS does not create value judgements, it instead gives practitioners the capacity to find products that best meet individual project or client requirements. The mindful MATERIALS library aims to support standard daily practices, driving building materials and projects to consider human health and environmental impacts of products in the built environment.
