Submit a Case Study

The Resource Library of the Carbon Leadership Forum publishes case studies, research papers, articles, posts, and curated links to books, videos, LCI inventories and data, and association and government resources. By crowdsourcing and disseminating this information, we aim to accelerate learning and increase knowledge, thereby empowering our members with the information needed to advance new ideas and approaches that result in a transformed, decarbonized building industry. The CLF Resource Library welcomes case studies developed by CLF members to be shared with the CLF network. Use this form to submit your case study for review by the CLF staff and inclusion in the Resource Library.

CLF reserves the sole right to publish, unpublish, or edit case studies to ensure accuracy and readability. Case studies must help advance CLF's mission to radically reduce the embodied carbon in building materials and construction and should:

  • provide generalized guidance and case studies rather than product/company specific promotion.
  • support high quality embodied carbon policy and practices without lobbying for specific legislation.
  • disseminate research findings in accessible formats linking to supporting documentation.

We also require that all submitted case studies be reviewed by additional volunteers who have domain expertise and are not members of the CLF staff. The peer-reviewers you suggest should not be associated with the project or any firms that worked on the project or benefitted from it financially. Peer reviewers consider structure, content, writing and communication style, scientific and analytical rigor, factual accuracy, and overall relevance or usefulness.
