The Portland Material Transparency Collaborative (PMTC) is a network of building industry professionals dedicated to integrating full disclosure of material content as a performance benchmark in the way products are developed, designed and integrated into the built environment. The goal of PMTC is to stimulate market transformation and community engagement with a unified regional voice for the ­­implementation of material transparency into everyday practices.

The Portland Collaborative is a branch of both the Cascadia Green Building Council and the International Living Future Institute (ILFI). Our mission is to lead a transformation toward a built environment that is socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative. We achieve our mission through research and advocacy, communication and networking events where local professionals share ideas and learn from each other.
