Carbon Leadership Forum:

The Carbon Leadership Forum is an industry-academic collaboration hosted at the University of Washington. We are a professional community of manufacturers, designers, builders and academics focused on reducing the carbon ‘embodied’ in building materials. Industry sponsorships fund embodied carbon research at UW and firm representatives lead initiatives. We work together to understand and reduce embodied carbon: leading by testing methods, sharing results and motivating each other to improve.
