Refined & Aligned: Introducing ILFI’s Upcoming LBC, ZC, and ZE Updates

At ILFI, our programs are continuously evolving in order to keep pace with a rapidly changing industry, shaped by the latest insights from the research community and reflecting feedback from our incredible, trail-blazing project teams. 

Join this member webinar and be among the very first to hear what’s changing, what’s staying the same, and what’s next on the horizon for the Living Building Challenge, Zero Carbon Certification™ (ZC), and Zero Energy Certification™ (ZE).

After an overview of each program, we’ll dive into the key changes that will be rolling out later this year. These critical updates will bring greater clarity, ambition, and alignment to the energy and carbon requirements along with improvements to other LBC Imperatives, including: 

  • An updated ASHRAE baseline for new building energy efficiency requirements
  • A new science-based carbon cap target
  • New requirements to address fugitive emissions 
  • Changes to Core Green Building Certification
  • And more! 

Whether you’ve worked on an LBC, ZC, or ZE project, or you’re brand new to our programs, this will be an important and exciting webinar for our members to participate in. See you there!
