  • Greetings and thank you for your interest in the Living Building Challenge, a program of the International Living Future Institute that was publicly launched in November 2006.
  • Living Building Challenge is a philosophy, advocacy tool, and certification program that addresses development at all scales.The underlying principle of the Living Building Challenge is that all projects should use nature as the ultimate measurement stick for performance – the Challenge uses the metaphor of the flower to illustrate this principle.Like a flower, all elements of the built environment are rooted in place. Yet, a flower has place-based solutions to meet all of its needs and to maintain balance with its surroundings. So, imagine a building, site or infrastructure project that is informed by its ecoregion’s characteristics. That generates energy with renewable resources, captures and treats water, operates efficiently and as part of a larger community; acts as feedstock for new developments at the end of its life; and is beautiful…. And neighborhoods that scale these solutions appropriate to size and function.
  • Declare is an ingredients label for building products that offers answers to three essential questions: What is the product made of? Where was it made? And what will happen to it at the end of its life?Imperative 11 of the Living Building Challenge: The Red List, addresses the prevalence of building materials and chemicals that pose threats to human health and to the resilience of ecosystems. When attempting to meet this Imperative, many Living Building Challenge project teams have experienced difficulty getting manufacturers to disclose their ingredients. Declare helps to overcome this barrier by providing an online searchable database of Red List Free and Living Building Challenge compliant building materials. After a manufacturer submits a complete ingredients list to Declare and the company leader responsible for the product signs an agreement declaring that the submittal is accurate, they can be included in the database. .Declare is a program of the International Living Future Institute.
  • Thank you for your interest in the Living Building Challenge. For more information and to subscribe to the online Community, please visit the website at living-building-challenge-dot-org. (Mention the opportunity to provide feedback on the presentation and ask if anyone has questions)
  • If you are interested in shifting the focus of green building conversations by delivering informal introductory presentations like this one to peers, local organizations, institutions, companies and community groups, visit the Institute’s website to learn about how to receive training through the Ambassador Network.(Mention the Ambassador program and speak about what you are doing to promote Living Building Challenge – for example: Are you willing to volunteer to spread the word about a path to a restorative future in the built environment?Do you have a passion for the Living Building Challenge? Visit the Institute’s website to get involved – We are ALL ambassadors.)
  • A project can earn partial program certification, or “Petal Recognition” by implementing the requirements of three or more Petals. At least one of the Petals must be Water, Energy or Materials. All projects must also comply with the site selection requirements in Imperative 01: Limits to Growth and the education requirements of Imperative 20: Inspiration + Education.
