mindful MATERIALS is a 501(c)(3) organization working to get the building materials community on the same page so we can stop redoing important work, and all have greater impact together. This is accomplished through its Collaboration Hub (mM Hub) and the Common Materials Framework (mM CMF). The mM Hub assembles interdisciplinary changemakers across the built environment eager to collaborate to make sustainability standard for materials. The mM CMF makes this vision possible, by providing professionals and organizations with an aligned foundation for understanding product sustainability data and aligning on pre-competitive ideals.


The mindful MATERIALS Library aggregates product sustainability information while minimizing redundant effort on the part of both manufacturers and designers. mindful MATERIALS is NOT another certification. It is an agnostic product certification library, enabling manufacturers to showcase product transparency and optimization information and industry professionals to search for a multitude of relevant products.


Want to make more mindful materials selections and reduce the holistic embodied impacts of your project? Use the digitized Common Materials Framework in the mM Portal to search for products by impact.
