is a transparency platform and product database that is changing the materials marketplace.

Since its launch in 2012, Declare has positively changed the materials marketplace by offering simplicity and ease of use to both manufacturers and specifiers to facilitate the exchange of information and enable a future of healthier buildings.

A Declare Label answers three questions:

  • Where does a product come from?
  • What is it made of?
  • Where does it go at the end of its life?

In 2019, ILFI released Living Building Challenge 4.0 and Core Green Building Certification, continuing to forge ahead on our path toward a Living Future. To support these catalysts for change, ILFI released Declare 2.0. This latest iteration further seeks to expand the program’s reach and push the industry toward a more holistic approach to material health.

Moreover, ILFI has worked on adapting Declare for Europe and manufacturers can now screen their products for European Union Chemicals of Concern (EU CoC) at 100 ppm (.01%) in addition to ILFI’s Red List. While not proof of regulatory compliance, this harmonized screening capability allows manufacturers to lead the market through public transparency and demonstrate avoidance of harmful substances.
