QUESTION

How are Living Product Challenge certified products counted in the Living Building Challenge? 

ANSWER

Living Product Challenge certified products in the Living Building Challenge

To acknowledge the level of environmental and social responsibility involved in certifying under the Living Product Challenge (LPC) any product certified under the LPC may count as follows within the listed Living Building Challenge Imperatives: 
I12 Responsible Industry: LPC certified products count double toward the requirement for one Declare label per 500 square meters of gross building area (i.e. 1 LPC product counts as 2 Declare labels). 
I13 Living Economy Sourcing: LPC products count double their materials cost (same as Declare labeled products).
