Living Standard is the U.S. Green Building Council’s campaign to support its inclusive and resilient vision that healthy people in healthy places equals a healthy economy. An initiative created for sharing personal experiences, best practices, and the benefits of building green, Living Standard seeks to create awareness and adoption of healthier spaces, and to champion a better quality of life for people around the world.
Everyone deserves to benefit from better building. Everyone is entitled to a healthy space to live, learn, work, and play. And everyone should have the opportunity to thrive physically, emotionally, and economically. Our green building community is uniquely positioned to create a world where the future we design is in line with the higher Living Standard we have long deserved.”
President and CEO, U.S. Green Building Council, GBCI, and Arc
To create a healthier world than the one we’ve inherited, we have to look at life through someone else’s lens. We have to help people make the connection between healthier building and healthier living. We have to ask questions of people who don’t look like us, who don’t live where we live, and who don’t experience the world the same way we do. In other words, we have to dig deeper.
