Closing the Loop: Collaboration for Better Buildings

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Transparency in a vacuum fails to close the loop. The Closing the Transparency Loop (CTL) movement was created to shine a light on the lack of communication throughout the value chain of building projects. Manufacturers have typically had no idea whether their sustainability investments have yielded a return on investment. But what began as a need to make the case for manufacturers has quickly become a movement designed to further communication between all stakeholders within the built environment value chain to stabilize the business case for investment in sustainability. Over 100 manufacturing and A+D firms came together at LF19 to collaborate and take action to transform the materials economy. Join the conversation at the stage and learn how you can take action to Close the Transparency Loop yourself.
