The Athena Sustainable Materials Institute is a non-profit research collaborative bringing life cycle assessment to the construction sector.

Life cycle assessment (LCA) is the science behind environmental footprinting. The Athena Institute works with sustainability leaders in product manufacturing, building design, construction, and green labelling programs to enable smaller footprints in the production and consumption of construction materials.
