A new publication from the LFE Technical Advisory Group (TAG) is now available!

Presented on November 9th at the VII YouBuild Nation Conference in Milan by LFE President, Carlo Battisti, this document addresses Declare®, a tool to share and find healthy building products. The publication describes how Declare® aligns with the other green building standards available in Europe and the European regulations, frameworks, and initiatives (in the European Union and the United Kingdom).

With regard to building materials and furniture products, given the accelerated dynamics happening at the legislative and policy making levels, it is expected that a significant part of the here considered requirements to be further developed during the months to come. This document aims to explore the actual key aspects and anticipate the upcoming changes.
