The Collaborative benefits greatly from its mindful MATERIALS Partners. These groups support and promote the growth of mindful MATERIALS by expanding our reach to a larger audience. Our two founding Partners, USGBC-Illinois and BuildingGreen, have been instrumental in the development and growth of the program.

USGBC-Illinois provides training sessions promoting mindful MATERIALS and provides guidance on program content.

BuildingGreen, an independent consultancy and knowledge provider, supports the program with general expertise and technical reviews of the mindful MATERIALS Spreadsheets.
