Construction Materials Exchange

Pilot in Ireland 2023

This whitepaper explores the IGBC’s Construction Materials Exchange (CMEx) platform, developed in partnership with Excess Materials Exchange. The pilot in Ireland revealed significant interest in circular material usage yet highlighted key challenges, including legal ambiguity and information dissemination. Valuable lessons from the pilot underscore the need for strategic engagement and quality control to foster a successful marketplace. With careful curation and increased exchanges, Ireland can advance material reuse at scale.
