    The demand for transparency is driving building-product transformation. The Transparency Catalog is accelerating the transformation by making it super easy to select, specify, and procure greener and healthier materials for high-performance building projects. Continually growing, it includes 1,770 manufacturers, products in 1,250 MasterFormat sections (Apr ‘22), and every EPD, HPD, Declare label and C2C-certified product available in North America. Architecture, engineering, construction, and owner-operated (AECO) industry stakeholders constructing high-performance buildings want to ensure the brands and products they select actually get specified, procured, and installed. Today, the substantial gaps in workflow, data, and tools make doing so time-intensive, expensive, and difficult to repeat. Transparency Catalog Project Builder enables integrated and efficient processes for AECO industry stakeholders to centralize data and collaborate across design, build, and operate. It builds knowledge and expertise to make informed decisions to help ensure the outcome is a credibly higher-performing building.
