Friendly Materials© is an analytical assessment methodology that allows evaluating and objectively compare how building materials and building systems affect indoor areas and, therefore, the health of its occupants.

We raise awareness on non-toxic built environments, on healthy building design, and we promote transparency within the building materials’ industry.

Friendly Materials© is geared for manufacturers or companies that want to stand out from their competitors, by committing to healthy buildings, transparency of information and to corporate social responsibility.

With Friendly Materials® we help you to achieve a healthier built environment that offer the highest life quality to its users and that are a step ahead from its competitors.

We study and analytically evaluate your building’s indoor areas, and we recommend improvement actions that enable a raise of the health level of the assessed areas.

Our analysis is based on how building materials affect human health during the useful life period of a building.
