Living Building Challenge

Living Building Challenge

A program launched and operated by the Cascadia Region, OR, Green Building Council, one of the first three chapters of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), with standards that go beyond the USGBC’s LEED standard. Buildings, neighborhoods, renovations, or infrastructure (non-conditioned space) that meet this rigorous green building standard must achieve all corresponding prerequisites or imperatives.
