The Living Building Challenge is an international green building rating system, that is the brainchild of Jason McLennan, CEO of Cascadia Green Building Council, and International Living Building Institute. This system is the greenest rating system internationally, whose focus is to strive to ensure the built environment is regenerative to the ecosystems that we share and live within. Eco Sense achieved Petal Certification in October 2010, and presently (as of Sept 2011) is the greenest home rated by the greenest rating system ever created.
