Developed by The Living Future Institute, The Living Building Challenge™ is the built environment's most rigorous performance standard.
The LBC calls for the creation of building projects at all scales that operate as cleanly, beautifully and efficiently as nature's architecture. To be certified under the Challenge, projects must meet a series of ambitious performance requirements over a minimum of 12 months of continuous occupancy.
The Living Building Challenge calls for materials transparency so Declare was developed. A labelling system displaying a Products contents. Products can gain a "Red List Free" status if it is free of toxic red listed materials. The Living Building Challenge is truly a visionary path to a regenerative future going beyond the "do less harm" mentality to improving the environment around us.
