ConTech Lighting by Leviton announced today that the ConTech Track System and Mini Stealth Track Luminaire are the first track lighting products in the industry to earn published Declare Labels for use with Living Building Challenge projects.
Declare is a transparency platform and product database program designed by International Living Future Institute (ILFI) to facilitate the exchange of information and enable healthier buildings. A Declare Label provides information on where a product comes from, what it is made of, and where it goes at the end of its life.
“We are excited to earn the first track lighting Declare labels for two of ConTech’s top track products, with more to come. It is critically important that we partner with programs focused on a future of healthier buildings and work environments like the Living Building Challenge,” says Michael Lehman, general manager, ConTech Lighting. “Participating in ILFI’s Declare Program is key to ensuring product transparency for lighting specifiers and that our customers get the best products as we all work together for a more sustainable and healthy future.”
ConTech is directly involved with organizations that develop health, energy, and sustainability standards, including the U.S. Green Building Council, U.S. Department of Energy, ENERGY STAR®, the IESNA, and Green Globes.
“Adding this certification to our products is another demonstration of our commitment and level of care for our customers and our planet,” adds Lehman.
