Given its immense ecological footprint and impact on human wellbeing, the built environment is a key leverage point in achieving the goals put forward in the Paris Agreement as well as many other sustainability objectives.

Together we are leading the way to a circular built environment.

We are funding Blueprint Projects

To accelerate the transition towards a circular built environment, we invite industry frontrunners—projects and initiatives—to share their ideas on creating demand and overcoming existing barriers. Any blueprint project submission must be eager to boost the market for their solution, or comparable ones, and think deeply about scaling opportunities and methodology improvements. Engaging in the blueprint project process will help to increase work recognition and visibility.
