The Living Building Challenge is a certification that pushes the envelop of sustainability as we all know it.  This certification concentrates on verifying that projects are designed and built with the occupants 100% in mind.  Spaces are designed so the occupants connect with natural light, fresh air, healthy food and a thriving community.   The site and its building itself is designed and built to be part of the landscape, by generating more energy rather than using energy and by treating all water that is disturbed, instead of intruding or diminishing the environment.  These buildings give more than what they take, they create a positive impact on humans and natural systems.
