Icons

Each material has an icon. They illustrate whether a material is biobased and/or circular, whether it concerns a pioneer project or is already available in large quantities and whether it contributes to nature inclusivity.  

Biobased

Biobased materials consist of nature. You can grow and harvest them. You can build with them and after use, you can compost them and give them back to nature.

Circular

Circular methodologies enable the reusability of materials, without losing their value or causing damage to the environment.

nature inclusive

Nature-inclusive building ensures that not only humans can live sustainably, but that many plants and animals also get a place to live.

Today

Apply today. This material or method is widely available.

tomorrow

Apply tomorrow. Scaling up is the next step.

Future

Apply the day after tomorrow. Innovation is still needed to be able to put into use.
