Using the API

This page describes how users can get access to, and use 2050 Materials' API service.

Accessing our API

2050 Materials' API aims to seamlessly integrate comprehensive sustainability data into digital design processes in the construction industry. It leverages AI-powered algorithms and detailed life cycle assessment (LCA) calculations to create a vast, high-quality database on the climate impact of building materials. This integration facilitates real-time calculations of embodied environmental impacts, supporting designers and builders in making more informed, sustainable choices. The goal is to make sustainability a fundamental and easily accessible part of the construction process.

API Access and Authentication details

License is available to any organization which has a use-case for high-quality product information. Use cases include, but are not limited to, building a carbon tool for the construction industry, linking carbon and other data in cost estimation software, and including more granular information in real estate climate risk metrics.
