EC3 is Building Transparency's cornerstone tool. It includes the first searchable, sortable, fully digital and standardized database of global Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). The tool helps building owners, architects, designers, construction companies, material suppliers and policymakers directly measure, compare and reduce the embodied carbon of the products they purchase, specify, manufacture and procure.
EC3 can be implemented in both the design and procurement phases of a construction project to look at Upfront Embodied Carbon Emissions.
Users of the tool are spurring the movement toward better buildings - guided by critical data and insights. Become a user for free today (and every day)! Sign up here.

- Boasts more than 25,000 users from over 70 countries
- Supports over 2,200 building projects
- In markets where EPD data currently exists, Building Transparency is seeing 30% or more reductions in carbon emissions by using the tool to select and procure low carbon materials.
