ASSA ABLOY joins Mindful Materials building industry group

September 27, 2023  By  SP&T Staff

ASSA ABLOY announced it is participating in a building industry group, collectively known as The Forums, from Mindful Materials, a non-profit “dedicated to reducing, and ultimately reversing, the embodied impacts of the built environment through our collective material choices.”

The Forums represent owners and more than 80 people from over 40 companies across the manufacturing, architecture, design, engineering, and construction industries.

The three Forum groups that were formed this year are the Owners Forum, the AEC Forum, and the Manufacturers Forum.

“The Forums are uniquely exciting as an industry initiative because they are designed for cross-collaboration,” said Amy Musanti, director of sustainable building solutions, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions, and a member of the Manufacturers Forum. “Each Forum will produce individual accomplishments and resources for their sector, but together we’ll be able to solve larger challenges as part of the materials decision flow. It’s about breaking out of our silos to support collective action as an ecosystem.”

Other Manufacturers Forum members include Armstrong World Industries, CertainTeed, Construction Specialties, GAF, Humanscale, Kingspan, Legrand, MAPEI, Mecho, nCompass, Patcraft, Saint-Gobain, Shaw Contract, and Superior Essex.
