Declare label

Declare is an ingredients initiative for building products that is designed to shape a greener, healthier environment for construction workers, business employees, and customers alike.

A DECLARE label answers three questions:

  • Where does a product come from?
  • What is it made of?
  • Where does it go at the end of its life?

Declare is a transparency platform and an international product database that is changing the materials marketplace. It is a nutrition label for the building industry. It helps architects, designers, specifiers, and others better understand a product’s sustainable qualities and environmental effects.
