Company Search: Contractor and Developer
The BlueGreen Alliance Foundation’s Building Clean database focuses on companies in the United States that produce safe, energy efficient building materials. Using this database, you can learn more about the products that are used in green buildings, and locate locally manufactured and healthy energy efficient products.
This database can help you find products that create jobs in your local community. Building material companies create thousands of quality manufacturing jobs across the country. The database covers products in five sectors: Building Shell, HVAC, Appliances, Lighting and Water.
The database also provides resources on locating building products that do not contain harmful chemicals that affect the health of workers and occupants, as well as proper safety procedures. Finding safe sealants and insulation will protect the inhabitants in the building and the workers who build it.
What our database can help you do:
- Learn about hazardous chemicals in building products and proper safety procedures. The hazardous chemicals section of the site details the types of chemicals that workers and occupants can be exposed to, and the proper ways to install products that use these chemicals.
- Locate products that have a health certification. The database contains information on certifications for safe and environmentally friendly building products. Use the certification filter if you want to find companies that make products that have a specific designation. To learn more about product safety certifications, visit the Harmful Chemicals section. There you will find not only explanations of the certifications, but healthier insulation and sealant product listings.
- Find local suppliers and learn about manufacturers in your community. This database can help you save costs on sourcing materials. Visit the interactive map section or the state index to locate companies in your area. You also can use the sector tabs, the CSI code or the generic search box to locate companies that offer a specific product.
