Turn buildings into a climate solution.

The Problem

Why we're here

Here’s the thing: the international scientific community has made it extremely clear that we need to reduce our collective carbon footprint in line with a 1.5-degree warming scenario. Right now, we are not on track.

For the real estate and construction sectors, cutting carbon emissions is no small feat — especially when it comes to building materials.

Building materials are responsible for approximately 11% of all global greenhouse gas emissions. For context, flights are 2.5% of global emissions.

We started Tangible because there wasn’t a good way for real estate developers and owners to manage and reduce their emissions from building materials.
