Proud to be 'Declared'
We’re proud to say that our Residential Series, Metro Series and APL Architectural Series Ranges are now ‘Declared’ by the International Living Future Institute. Through self-disclosure of ingredients, sourcing, and life cycle information, Declare is a tool to show our customers that our products can be trusted. It means we’re being measured by an industry-recognised tool that requires us to be totally transparent about our products.
What 'Declared' means
Declare takes complex chemical analysis and raw material source location information and provides it to consumers in an easy-to-use label. It also offers product specifiers the tools they need to make fully informed choices when selecting healthier products.
Colour coding of ingredients clearly flags the presence of Red List or Watch List Priority for Red List Inclusion chemicals. Created as a direct support to Living Building project teams, a product’s compliance with the relevant imperatives of the Challenge are clearly stated at the bottom of the label.
