When we know what our buildings are made of, we can make informed choices by selecting materials that are healthier for occupants and have a lesser impact on our environment.
The Quartz Project is a collaborative open data initiative that promotes the transparency of building products and their impacts on human and environmental health. This project is powered by the collaboration between Flux, Healthy Building Network, Google and thinkstep.
Data and information are critical for helping owners, architects and designers make smarter decisions to reduce embodied impacts and drive market transformation towards less toxic and lower-impact materials. With open data, we can design and build better buildings and communities even faster.
