The Living Product Challenge goes far beyond typical certification frameworks to inspire a whole new way of doing business for a world that needs far more good, not just less bad. Come hear from four manufacturers of Living Products about how taking on the challenge has inspired transformation of products, processes and people rippling far beyond the scope of the original certification.
Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn about the Living Product Challenge framework and how it applies to different types of products
  2. Compare the 1.1 to 2.0 frameworks and learn how the certification is building focus on carbon and social impacts.
  3. Consider how Handprinting and a framework of positive impact can create ripple effects beyond just product certification
  4. Explore opportunities for transformation at your own company based on the framework of the Living Product Challenge
This session is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 1.25 LFA credits
