Sponsor Spotlight

Sponsor Spotlight

CLF sponsor companies span the building industry, from architectural and engineering firms to material manufacturers, from construction companies to consultants in whole building life cycle assessment (WBLCA), from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to researchers, from facade designers to real estate investment and management companies. CLF sponsors participate in lively, generative conversations and collaborations working to reduce embodied carbon emissions from built environments.

Carbon Leadership Forum sponsors include architectural and engineering firms, contractors, material suppliers, educators, building owners, policymakers and associations. Sponsors collaborate through monthly conference calls, an online forum, regional hubs, action teams, and focus groups, advancing new ideas and approaches through shared tools, data, news and information, and impactful initiatives to reduce embodied carbon.
