About the Collaborative…
The International Living Future Institute (ILFI), based out of the Pacific Northwest, is the creator of a number of forward-thinking certifications and initiatives related to the built environment – including the Living Building Challenge, Declare Label, and JUST program. All of these programs are rooted in ILFI’s mission to lead the transformation toward a civilization that is socially just, culturally rich, and ecologically restorative.
By combining resources the Chicago Living Future Collaborative, Illinois Green and ILFI will collaborate to continue promoting green building design, construction and operations – and to fortify consideration for not just our buildings, but also the people inside them and the surrounding communities.
