The International Living Future Institute’s™ JUST™ program is a voluntary disclosure program and tool for all types and sizes of organizations. JUST is, quite simply, a call to social justice action.
It is not a verification or certification program. Rather, the program provides an innovative transparency platform for organizations to reveal much about their operations, including how they treat their employees and where they make financial and community investments.
In a similar fashion to the Living Building Challenge’s Declare® Program, the JUST Program acts somewhat as a “nutrition label” for socially just and equitable organizations.
This approach requires reporting on a range of organization–and employee-related indicators. Each of the indicator metrics asks for simple yet specific and measurable accountabilities in order for the organization to be recognized at a One, Two, or Three Star Level, which is then summarized elegantly on a label.

Organizations can use the label on their website or marketing to demonstrate their commitments to these issues. The Institute also transparently posts the detailed information in our publicly viewable database.
JUST marks the beginning of a new era of corporate transparency. The Institute invites organizations everywhere to evaluate themselves through this social justice and equity lens and become a JUST organization.
With support from participating organizations, JUST will help create a better, more socially just and equitable world.
