The building sector represents 25% 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 Bat'Impact score you optimize with Carbon Saver becomes the real-world goal. Carbon Saver and its partners will verify compliance between the original intent and the final outcome to certify your project's environmental excellence after implementation. For projects and organizations with an average score above 80, Carbon Saver awards certification.
If your agency maintains an average score above 80 across all projects (five or more), Carbon Saver certifies your organization.

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."

Carbon Saver's mission is simple: to limit the environmental impact of buildings in order to preserve the planet by simplifying the use of complex scientific calculations. We believe that preserving our environment is a common good, and we have been supported by the Ministry of Ecological Transition and the Public Investment Bank (BPI) since our creation. It has always seemed natural to us to offer a simple and free version to as many people as possible, because we firmly believe that acting for the environment is vital, and that each actor can make a difference.
In addition to this free version, we already have more complex paid versions for professionals! It is these paid versions that will ensure the sustainability and development of our solutions in France and soon on an international scale.
