The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) continues to grow its recently launched membership program for leaders who want to accelerate the adoption of a worldwide culture of health and well-being, adding a number of global leaders to its already impressive roster. The program is designed to be a platform for collaboration that allows for deeper engagement and broader reach for companies excited by the evidence that shows how the places and spaces we occupy every day can help people thrive.
“IWBI membership provides an opportunity for organizations to align with the WELL movement and join a community of leaders committed to advancing health and well-being across the globe,” said IWBI Chairman and CEO Rick Fedrizzi. “This diverse member network brings together product manufacturers, scientific institutes, real estate developers and others across multiple industries to advance a single mission - building a healthier future for everyone.”
There are two tiers of membership and a third designation for companies already enrolled in the WELL Portfolio program. This allows companies to select the best fit for their organizational goals. Member benefits include discounts on the WELL Certification process and WELL AP credentialing program, specialized opportunities to publicize accomplishments, and more touchpoints with IWBI leadership and across the broader community through members-only year-round events and enhanced digital engagement. The program creates pathways for WELL advocates and champions to stay connected, share best practices, explore new shared initiatives, and receive greater recognition for these efforts.
The continued growth of IWBI membership parallels WELL’s rapid uptake across the globe as the tool of choice for leaders who value the verified performance of design and operations when the health and well-being of people is at stake. To date, over 3,779 projects with more than 440 million square feet of registered space are participating in WELL in 58 countries. Much of WELL’s success is driven by a global network of WELL APs, with nearly 9,000 people either credentialed or are in the process, that helps provide expertise and guidance to project teams across the world.

About the International WELL Building Institute
The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) is leading the global movement to transform our buildings and communities in ways that help people thrive. The WELL v2 pilot is a recently launched version of its popular WELL Building Standard, and the WELL Community Standard pilot, a district scale rating system that sets a new global benchmark for healthy communities. WELL is focused exclusively on the ways that buildings and communities, and everything in them, can improve our comfort, drive better choices, and generally enhance, not compromise, our health and wellness. IWBI convenes and mobilizes the wellness community through management of the WELL AP credential, the pursuit of applicable research, the development of educational resources, and advocacy for policies that promote health and wellness everywhere. More information about membership can be found here.
