Use the Transparency Catalog to find brands and products for your green building projects in minutes –
Powerful MasterFormat® filtering, aligned with MasterSpec®, provides the flexibility to find exactly the brands, products and transparency disclosures to meet your requirements in each division AND section.
Now it’s easy to find 3 MFRs per section, with equivalent products and transparency disclosures.
The Transparency Catalog is always free to use, no login, no ads and we will never sell data or analytics.
MFRs investing in product transparency are committing to significant costs, time and risks to understand the materials and processes across the product life cycle, interpret the outcomes and convey the results. Most products with transparency disclosures already have certiﬁcations created for earlier versions of green building rating systems, which you can find on the MFR’s web site.
Our goal is to help you reward MFRs who are moving forward with the work required to make credibly greener and healthier products.
Use the Transparency Catalog to make your product transparency investments pay off –
Designed by customer experience and product transparency experts, your Transparency Catalog listing delivers the throughout the construction process, from design to build.

Product transparency builds credibly greener and healthier brands – but not by just producing disclosures. The value for MFRs comes from demonstrating you understand what it means and know what you’re doing.
Truth builds trust, trust builds powerful brands and powerful brands create preference and value for their companies.

Two types of free listings:
Sustainable Minds donates a portion of the Transparency Catalog proceeds to the National Park Foundation.
Manufacturers who understand what’s causing the impacts can make better design decisions to make better, higher performing, more innovative products. These manufacturers have real stories to tell. Sharing this knowledge educates the industry and ultimately creates preference and value for that brand.
Doing that has meant taking the long view and a systems approach starting with evaluating the standards development process and the various rating systems to understand commonalities and differences. Then working to make the resulting information from these programs simpler.
Sustainable Minds became an ISO 14025 program operator to develop a standardized, simpler and more useful approach to creating product category rules (PCRs) and environmental product declarations (EPDs). This vision has driven change and alignment in the industry.
What the market wants and needs is products with actually better environmental performance, not just reports. Disclosure alone without improvement is not helpful. We want AEC decision-makers to understand, make informed decisions and reward manufacturers who are actually making greener & healthier products.
Creating preference for those products by educating the market to understand what product transparency information means – will drive behavior change.
