Greenbuild India

India is going WELL this November. We’re thrilled to be at Greenbuild India in Mumbai and we hope you’ll join us.

Human sustainability has been coined as the second wave of sustainability. Underlying this movement is an understanding that humanity’s fate is tied irrevocably to the impact our buildings have on the environment and humans themselves.

Join us at a WELL education session or connect with Stephen Brown and Samantha Allen at the expo to learn more about WELL and better buildings that help people thrive. And be sure to attend the Opening Plenary, where our Chairman and CEO Rick Fedrizzi will deliver the keynote address.

"Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any nation can have"; said Sir Winston Churchill and rightly so. Human health is one of the most critical components of a healthy society and it is imperative that we create environments, spaces and buildings that enhance human health and wellbeing. So how do we go about designing and building our indoors spaces? Fortunately, there is a rich body of research on environmental interventions that improve health outcomes in buildings. This education session dives deeper into the WELL Building Standard to explore WELL concepts in depth. Key public health research provides a basis to consider each WELL Concept in depth, allowing for a greater discussion of how WELL Features address environmental concerns specifically for projects pursuing WELL Certification in India. The session will more specifically address the key challenges that project teams face when implementing preconditions for the Air, Nourishment and Light concept features. Finally, selected preconditions are presented in a context of a project scenario by discussing a project in Gurgaon, India that is pursuing WELL Certification.

The WELL Building Standard in India: WELL as a Value Driver for your Business

Room: 4th Stage, Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC)

Presenter: Stephen Brown

The WELL Building Standard is revolutionizing the way people think about buildings. WELL explores how design, operations and behaviors within the places where we live, work, learn and play can be optimized to advance human health and well-being. Join IWBI’s Stephen Brown as he discusses the current state of the health and well-being industry and how it is transforming how we can deliver better buildings that help people thrive and deliver value for companies. Employers typically seek certification to attract and retain high-quality employees, maximize employee performance and productivity, reduce impacts of presenteeism and absenteeism, and promote improved health for employees. He will discuss WELL’s ability to deliver business value alongside the global adoption of WELL, how it can be applied in India, and new initiatives such as the WELL v2 pilot and the WELL Portfolio Pathway pilot.
