The Carbon Leadership Forum is an organization at the University of Washington, Washington, USA and the centre of the worldwide network of CLF regional hubs.

What is the Carbon Leadership Forum?

The Carbon Leadership Forum (CLF) is accelerating the transformation of the building sector to radically reduce the embodied carbon in building materials and construction through collective action. CLF pioneers research, creates resources, fosters cross-collaboration, and incubates member-led initiatives to bring embodied carbon emissions of buildings down to zero.

The CLF network is made up of architects, engineers, contractors, material suppliers, building owners, and policymakers who care about the future and are taking bold steps to decarbonize the built environment, with a keen focus on eliminating embodied carbon from buildings and infrastructure.

Currently, the CLF network brings together over:


U.S. States
