THE BASICS

The Living Building Challenge is the “greenest” building standard in the world. It is transforming how we conceptualize and create the human-built environment. Each Living Building must meet requirements for regenerative performance in various domains, or “Petals,” including Place, Water, Energy, Health+Happiness, Materials, Equity, and Beauty. A living building must demonstrate its ability to “give more than it takes” over the life cycle of the structure.
