The building sector accounts for 30% of greenhouse gases in France and Europe. Global warming is scientifically proven and building professionals have a role to play.

The CS'score® is a complex calculation system in a very simple to use tool. It allows you to assess the environmental impact of an interior design project (and soon other types of project) without being an expert in environmental engineering.
Carbon Saver SAS, in partnership with the eco-design agency Cooperative MU, has developed the CS'score®. This calculation method is based on the analysis of data from more than 50 interior design projects.
For each element of a project, visual indicators help architects to choose low environmental impact materials at a glance.
A specific questionnaire for each project encourages architects to ask themselves which elements have the greatest impact. Depending on the answers chosen, the CS'score® changes in real time.
In addition to the CS'score®, the architect obtains a detailed report with relevant improvement advice
which evolves with the project.
From the early design phases to the implementation of the work, the architect can modify his answers to the questionnaire. The mobile site instantly updates a detailed report with new areas for improvement.
The Carbon Saver web application is designed and developed in collaboration with its community of users, which includes architects, interior designers, project managers, contractors and craftsmen. This active and regular co-creation process between building professionals and IT development professionals makes it possible to produce the most useful and effective eco-design tool to support its users throughout their projects.Join the community
A simple tool [...] that allows me to learn on a daily basis, to design my projects and renovate my sites with a healthier approach to housing. On the application I don't just calculate the impact of my project, I encourage my clients and my agency to participate in the current transition"

Carbon Saver has allowed me to concretely validate the environmental impact of my projects, and to be able to quantify to my clients the "savings" made through reuse and the choice of healthy and local materials"

The carbon saver application allowed me to adjust the choices I was going to propose to clients to reduce my impact. It also allowed me to learn things, or to ask myself more questions where I hadn't yet asked myself about the impact of a particular choice."

In my design projects, an important value for me is to reduce our ecological impact. I discovered Carbon Saver a few weeks ago and it's a tool that allows me to evaluate if my project respects this intention, but also gives me avenues for improvement to push ecological design even further."

Following our participation in the selection jury, the CSTB integrates Carbon Saver within the CSTB'Lab!
