BuildingGreen’s editorial team has been awarding our annual Top 10 green building products for more than 20 years. Our Top 10 is not a “pay-to-play” award. BuildingGreen is an independent company that doesn’t carry ads in its publications, nor does it accept money from product manufacturers for consulting or other services. Our editorial team hand-selects the Top 10 products, highlighting those that significantly improve upon “business-as-usual” practices to transform the building industry. This year, we showcase products that increase material reuse and circularity, improve our communities’ resilience, reduce carbon emissions and their impacts, and more.

  • product and material constituents, including their risks

  • product certifications

  • third-party product and material testing frameworks

  • ensuring functional performance

  • LEED Materials & Resources requirements

  • life-cycle assessment

  • the performance advantages and environmental impacts of different structural materials

Brent also serves as products editor at BuildingGreen, writing or editing all the company’s product-related publications. In this role, he also oversees BuildingGreen’s annual award program—the Top 10 Green Building Products—and presents his findings yearly.
