RESET® Embodied for Projects and Products

The RESET Embodied Standard is a data-driven standard for evaluating and scoring the carbon, circularity, and health performance of building materials and products in projects. RESET Embodied Standard is currently in Active Pilot Phase and is an update to the RESET Standard. Learn more about the RESET Standard Development and Update process.

This RESET Initiative will focus on the ongoing review and improvement of the standard, piloting the RESET Embodied Standard for:

  • Project Embodied Performance Scoring
  • Product Embodied Performance Scoring

This RESET Initiative is reserved to actual practitioners and will require project owners or product manufacturers to bring a real project or real product for scoring.


This RESET Initiative is currently in the Active Pilot phase.

Projects or Products interested in establishing a RESET Embodied Score can reach out to us at info@reset.build.
