Some of the world’s biggest, most influential building owners & builders have committed to creating buildings with positive human & environmental benefits. The Living Product 50 (LP50) is a collaboration of leading manufacturers working to ensure that healthy, high performing building materials with full ingredient transparency are widespread.
The LP50 works toward transparency in all things. They started a conversation with the design community to expand the manufacture of safe and transparently disclosed products and materials.
Coupled with the growth of green building standards like LEED, WELL, and Living Building Challenge, suppliers now face increased demand for multiple material ingredient reports. This created a timely environment for global call to action.
The LP50 recognizes the need to engage the global supplier networks in a systematic way. The LP50 are working with Toxnot’s supplier engagement platform and HPDC’s HPD Builder tool as the technology and disclosure solutions for their initiative.
What should you do when you get an LP50 request?

Toxnot makes it easy for product manufacturers and suppliers to respond to LP50 customer requests.
LP50 requests ask for material composition disclosures a level of 100 ppm (.01%). This level of disclosure allows for more rigorous assessment of risk – and is crucial to create the material health and transparency documents that customers are demanding. Toxnot lets you see composition at this level when you enter data.
For suppliers specifically, users can enter material and ingredient data once. From there, they can disclose to multiple standards without re-entering data. Additionally, when a user discloses a material on Toxnot (even with some chemicals marked as proprietary), their customers can evaluate their compliance to regulations without having to ping you again for more information.
Finally, by giving customers the information they need to show sustainability leadership, their sales could turn into even higher sales for you.
A variety of options exist ensure the security of proprietary information on both Toxnot and HPD Builder. Both approaches allow users to disclose hazard information while keeping chemical identification information proprietary if desired.
Toxnot’s software is designed to help users protect their data and customize IP protections. For those who want the efficiency benefits of sharing a material on Toxnot but are concerned about specific proprietary formulations, Toxnot lets users mark specific chemicals as proprietary, control data sharing settings, and approve who can see data. This allows users to share and manage hazard information with key stakeholders, but not specific CAS numbers.
All users own their data on Toxnot and we pride ourselves on meeting stringent privacy needs. Read more about Toxnot’s privacy and confidentiality here

When you upload material data on Toxnot, you may opt to add it to our searchable, secure database for anyone looking to use your specific ingredients and materials in their own product reporting- further reducing inefficiencies. Data security is customizable on Toxnot with a variety of supplier-controlled options for ingredient and hazard information, depending upon the intellectual property preferences.
When materials are available in Toxnot’s database, they can be made visible to other product manufacturers- and in turn, support their product reporting (Declare Labels, HPDs and more).
Toxnot supports reporting to Declare, Red2Green, HPDs, C2C and GIGA Origin/mindful MATERIALS. Compliance documentation for California Prop 65, REACH, RoHS and Conflict Minerals is also available.
Toxnot is proud to be a technology partner in this global commitment to better, safer building products.
