Accelerating adoption of a worldwide culture of health is a key goal
Submitted by International WELL Building Institute
The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) is pleased to announce the continued growth of its membership program. The most recent members to join the growing global network of product manufacturers, research institutes, real estate developers and many more diverse organizations are united in the mission to build a healthier future.
“IWBI membership serves as a dynamic platform for collaboration that fosters deeper engagement with the WELL movement,” said IWBI Chairman and CEO Rick Fedrizzi. “As aligned members, these committed leaders are playing a critical role in working toward global transformation.”
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 3,900 projects with more than 475 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 – nearly 10,000 people are either credentialed or in the process – that helps provide expertise and guidance to project teams across the world.
