A Context & Grønn Byggallianse publication.

"Grønn Materialguide” is an early design stage guideline for sustainable building materials developed by Context and Grønn Byggallianse and supported by Direktorat for Byggkvalitet and Husbanken. 

The guideline aggregates large amounts of product data using clear graphics, allowing comparisons of different materials in terms of embodied carbon, resource base, reuse and recycling, chemical content, indoor air quality and environmental documentation. “Grønn Materialguide” version 2.2 currently covers seven categories including structural materials, flooring, external cladding and insulation materials, and is updated following industry feedback to version 2.0.
