About CarbonStar


We believe the CarbonStar   Rating System is the best tool for tracking the embodied carbon of concrete.


An Industrial Partnership

The CarbonStar Technical Specification was written by the Canadian Standards Accreditation (CSA) in collaboration with a committee of knowledgeable and respected individuals from industrial and academic organizations across the United States and Canada.


Additional support for CarbonStar has come from academic and legislative bodies, architectural and engineering firms, technology start-ups, and the travel industry. 

Companies helped form the Carbon Star industrial partnership to demonstrate a commitment to reducing embodied carbon in the built environment.

Below is a list member organizations and committee members.
