Swatchbox, the premier sample fulfillment platform for architects and designers, and Sustainable Minds, the cloud provider of environmental and material ingredient product transparency data, have announced a partnership to enhance AEC professionals’ access to building product transparency data in North America.
The partnership includes the development of a new integration between the Swatchbox and Sustainable Minds Transparency Catalog platforms. Through the integration, Swatchbox material sample listings will display transparency data from the Transparency Catalog, while Transparency Catalog product listings will provide new access to material samples through Swatchbox. The connection between the two platforms will equip architects and other building professionals to reliably access the most up-to-date product data throughout every phase of their workflow.
“Product transparency is one of the top considerations for architects and designers when evaluating material samples,” said Benjamin Glunz, CEO of Swatchbox. “We are excited to provide easy access to dependable sustainability data on Swatchbox through our partners at Sustainable Minds.”
“Environmental performance and material health are performance criteria AECs are increasingly using to make decisions about brands and their products,” said Terry Swack, CEO of Sustainable Minds. “Connecting the Transparency Catalog and Swatchbox will help equip architects and designers to select credibly greener and healthier products and reward manufacturers for making them.”
Swatchbox and Sustainable Minds will be discussing the new partnership and its benefits for designers at two upcoming events in Chicago: NeoCon (June 13-15, 2022) and the A’22 Conference on Architecture (June 23-24, 2022).
