The Buy Clean Buy Fair (BCBF) Washington Project was a pilot study commissioned by the Washington State Legislature in 2021. This project was funded by two budget provisos that required the University of Washington (UW) College of Built Environments’ Carbon Leadership Forum (CLF) to:
-Develop a reporting database to collect environmental and labor information from state construction projects. For this project, the database is a prototype, meant for testing and demonstration purposes only.
-Conduct a case study using pilot projects. Five projects were enlisted to test out and provide feedback on the data reporting process.
