The Living Building Challenge (LBC) certification program, administered by the International Living Future Institute, takes a broad view of sustainability and embraces the philosophy of a restorative future by looking at a building’s performance over time. In fact, certification is not granted until the building has been occupied and its performance documented for one year.
The Institute’s Declare Label is an ingredients-based eco-label around the Red List of “chemicals of concern” that have human health and toxicity impacts. Declare aims to provide transparency and open communication by allowing manufacturers to voluntarily share their product sources, materials and manufacturing locations.
Metal Sales is the first metal panel manufacturer to be included in the rigorous and exclusive Declare™ program. Metal Sales has fullydisclosed all of the ingredients in the Acrylic-coated Galvalume® roof and wall panels through Declare, and they are designated as being Red List Free on the Declare Label.
