Declare Labels

The Living Building Challenge™ is one of the most challenging sustainability-focused building rating systems available today. The Living Building Challenge focuses on seven petals: Place, Water, Energy, Health & Happiness, Materials, Equity and Beauty.

The main changes in this most recent version include an expanded focus on transparency around human health including use of the Declare System where manufacturers may choose to get their products listed as complying with this challenge.

A Declare Label answers three questions:

  1. Where does a product come from?
  2. What is it made of?
  3. Where does it go at the end of its life?
