About Us

The International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI) is a public benefit corporation committed to improving human health and well-being through the built environment.

What We Do

IWBI administers the WELL Building Standard® (WELL), a performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment that impact occupants’ health and well-being. Fulfilling the vision of IWBI Founder Paul Scialla, IWBI has a pioneering, altruistic capitalism model that addresses social responsibility and demonstrates a sustainable model for philanthropy.

What is WELL?

The WELL Building Standard focuses on seven categories of building performance: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. Pioneered by Delos, WELL is grounded in evidence-based medical research that demonstrates the connection between buildings and its impact on occupants’ health and wellness. The WELL Building Standard is administered by IWBI and third-party certified by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).
