Declare and Red List Free

It is a voluntary program initiated by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) and is used to promote transparency and sustainability in the building industry.

The Living Building Challenge (LBC) Red List represents materials, chemicals, and elements known to pose serious risks to human health and the greater ecosystem that are prevalent in the building products industry.
