Introduction to the Living Product Hub
Join us at the special stage on the trade show floor to learn more about the newly formed Living Product Hub in Pittsburgh!

Pittsburgh is the birthplace of American manufacturing and a city with a vision to reimagine itself as a center for innovation, green manufacturing, and job creation. The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) is partnering with Green Building Alliance (GBA) to help make this vision a reality through the creation of a Living Product “Hub”. Co-located at GBA’s office in Pittsburgh’s South Side neighborhood, the Hub will serve as a center of education and outreach, connecting innovative buildings, communities, and projects to the Institute’s network in order to accelerate regenerative buildings and manufacturing.

“The Hub will support Pittsburgh’s ongoing efforts to reinvent itself as a place where innovation and invention meet the future,” said James Connelly, Director of the Living Product Challenge for ILFI. “Through the Living Product Challenge—our aspirational framework for rethinking product design and manufacturing—and the Declare label program, we will provide hands-on assistance to companies who are committed to creating transparent, nontoxic and sustainable products.”
