Welcome to the Building Environmental Justice Tool

This free tool has been developed for design teams & community development advocates to be used on building projects.

Environmental justice (EJ) & social equity issues are different and nuanced from project to project with no cookie-cutter solutions.

With that in mind, this toolkit provides the data, resources, and framework to identify pressing issues and document your journey to accounting for more equitable design.

We would like to thank HOK, Stantec, Jacobs, Quinn Evans, and the Large Firm Roundtable for their generous support. Thanks also to our steering committee – made up of members from NAACP’s Centering Equity in the Sustainable Building Sector, National Organization for Minority Architect, and the large firm roundtable – for their vision, guidance, and feedback throughout the tool’s development.
