The DCC Cylinder pendant joins DMF downlights in surpassing international sustainability standards
October 13, 2020
The Living Building Challenge is an international sustainable building certification program. Earlier this year, our recessed LED downlight system achieved Living Building Challenge compliancy. Now, we’re proud to announce we’ve expanded our compliant product offering to include the DCC Cylinders as well. With its aluminum-alloy unibody design and RoHS approved electrical components, our surface mounts are up to 90% recyclable and free of non-sustainable, harmful toxins.
Living Building Challenge
Similar to LEED, Green Globes, and other standards recognized by local, state, and international governments, the Living Building Challenge is the world’s most rigorous proven performance standard for buildings. People from around the world use its regenerative design framework to create spaces that give more than they take.
Living Buildings are:
Regenerative buildings that connect occupants to light, air, food, nature, and community.
Self-sufficient and remain within the resource limits of their site.
Create a positive impact on the human and natural systems that interact with them.
DMF’s continued commitment to better living
Efficiency and sustainability are at the core of DMF, pushing us to design ever-more energy efficient lights and informing the materials we use to build our products. Projects using DMF’s downlight system or surface mount pendants are on the pathway to reaching the top classification of Living Certified.
