The demand to understand the health impacts of building products is increasing. Human and environmental health considerations have emerged as crucial factors in material manufacturing and selection.
To make an informed decision we need to know:
- Where is it made?
- What from?
- Where does it go at the end of its life?
Declare has the answers.
Declare provides transparency so you know straight away if a product meets your specification criteria and Living Building Challenge standards.
The program also identifies (and advocates for the reduction of) chemicals on the Red List – the worst class ingredients in the building industry.
- pollute the environment
- bio-accumulate up the food chain until they reach toxic concentrations
- harm construction and factory workers
