If you’re a building practitioner or professional who has ever felt unsure of where to begin to change the materials we use for good; or overwhelmed by the volume of ‘TLA’s’ (three-letter-acronyms!); this summit will help you to make sense of how it all fits together and how + why a map of the industry will accelerate progress. The Impact Summit will mark the beginning of the next chapter of building materials — we invite you to join us to help shape the future of materials sustainability.

At this summit you will learn how you can drive change — for the climate, for communities, for ecosystems and beyond — in any role, plus leverage the genius of the room and build collaborative opportunities with peers.

This summit is about coming together, as a material sustainability industry and as building professionals, to help each other turn good intent into action, and champion the transformative power of collaboration.

mindful MATERIALS:

Driving holistic materials sustainability is an essential and immediate need to course-correct the built environment towards a thriving future — from climate impacts, to the social inequities of toxic material exposure, inefficient material systems that drive waste, and beyond.

We all want to make a difference, but materials and their embodied impacts are part of complex, global systems. Navigating this landscape alone is daunting and inefficient.

mindful MATERIALS is a certification-agnostic industry convener, rooted in the idea that collaboration drives greater impact. On June 13th, 2022, mM will host the very first mMATERIAL impact summit, bringing together in one room the leading material sustainability groups from across the built environment alongside building industry professionals from all different fields eager to leverage their role for good.

Event Sponsored by Steelcase.
