This session explores the changes to the Living Building Challenge Standard with the release of LBC 4.0. International Living Future Institute staff will walk through each Imperative that has changed or is new, explaining the rationale behind the changes and highlighting the requirements for teams. There will also be a review of new certification options and information on resources. This session assumes some familiarity with the Living Building Challenge program and the LBC 3.1 requirements, and will therefore not spend time on the overview, background, and philosophy behind the Living Building Challenge Standard, but rather look at the details of the changes from LBC 3.1 to LBC 4.0.

Learning Objectives
1. Navigate and explain the “What’s New in 4.0” table.
2. Compare the certification pathways available to LBC project teams.
3. Describe the new Imperatives.
4. List the reasons for the latest changes to the LBC Standard.

This session is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 1.25 LFA credits
  • 1.25 AIA LU credits
