Event Details

On October 3rd the International Living Future Institute launched Declare (declareproducts.com), the ingredients label for building products. By providing manufacturers and specifiers of building materials a clear, elegant and informative ‘nutrition-label’, Declare aims to transform the marketplace through transparency and open communication. Declare aligns with the Living Building Challenge™ (LBC) by providing product transparency in support of the program’s Red List and Appropriate Sourcing Imperatives, streamlining material documentation and project certification. As a further aid to project teams striving to meet the LBC materials requirements  the Institute will also release a Materials Petal Handbooks in time for Green Build, November 12. This workshop will cover the basics of the Declare program and how it can be used to streamline the process for materials selection and documentation, followed by an introduction to the LBC Materials Petal handbook which provides a concise guide to the strict LBC Materials requirements.
