Startup Stories: Commercial Construction Sustainability Association

New associations launch to fill a void in their sector

Starting point. With the commercial construction industry, along with its “built environment,” generating nearly 40 percent of the world’s carbon emissions and facing challenges when it comes to ESG (environmental, social and governance), a group of construction executive decided to launch a national association dedicated to the industry’s sustainability activities.

The Commercial Construction Sustainability Association (CCSA) plans to act as a single place where architects, contractors, engineers, banks and financiers, manufacturers, building supply companies and numerous related service companies can come to discuss, research and discover who’s doing what when it comes to sustainability and ESG (environmental, social and governance).

Early work. To start, the group will track and report on sustainable building projects in the commercial and industrial space, so other members can consider using the specific features in their next building project. In addition, CCSA will report on new energy-saving products and technologies, allowing members to gain access to valuable information.
