Vision and Mission
We consider the Earth as a closed system where there should not be any waste. Raw materials are scarce. To keep materials available indefinitely, they need to be reused, and their use must be documented. “Waste is material without an identity.”
It is Madaster's mission to make material available forever by giving it an identity. When materials have an identity, they can never disappear in anonymity as waste. Every building becomes a depot of materials with a certain value.
To achieve this, the Madaster platform creates transparency about material assets in the built environment. Product and material data can be stored, enriched, shared and managed. A material passport gives insight into the materials, components and products used to create a building, and into their quantities. Additionally, the material passport contains information on the quality of materials, their locations, and their monetary and circular value. This way, it becomes a lot easier to reuse materials, minimize waste, and to reduce the cost of material consumption. Improved insight into the use of materials will stimulate the circular economy and will lead to better design solutions.
Together with an ecosystem of partners, Madaster provides smart data management tools and insights that enable sustainable decisions and value creation – for business success and a healthier planet. With a strong focus on privacy, security and continuity, the platform is globally available and compatible with regional practices and standards.
We are driven by our vision to enable humanity to use material forever. The realization of this public ambition is guaranteed by our governance model.
