Who are the leaders in the building industry? Companies that nail the concept of the Circular Economy.

Lake City, Colo., Sept. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Builder Media has chosen 12 companies to hold up as shining examples of corporate responsibility. 

“This year's Eco Leaders were chosen because they've made strides toward Circular Thinking,” explains Green Builder Editor-in-Chief Matt Power. “They're shifting corporate culture, resource chains, and manufacturing processes to reduce material volume, energy, or water–or all three.”

This exclusive report addresses how EPDs, ESGs, Cradle-to-Cradle, and other criteria impact building performance, offering replicable information for companies and organizations who are interested in reducing their environmental impact.  

Even as Green Builder celebrates these sustainable leaders, Power notes that more work needs to be done. “The ultimate goal, which none of our winners, incidentally, has yet achieved, is to create a ‘closed loop,’ where products are made, sold, and ultimately reacquired and remanufactured into useful items, all with zero inputs of energy or raw resources.” 

While the goal is ambitious, Power believes it could be achieved soon if companies take their environmental responsibilities seriously. “In fact, we'd raise the bar even higher,” he says. “Before they think about expansion, companies should achieve ‘full circle’ manufacturing. Otherwise, they're simply making the Climate Emergency worse.”
