The commercial sector is coming to the realisation that promoting wellbeing is one of the key returns on investment for greener buildings. This seminar will give insight into the latest research from World Green Building Council’s project Better Places for People which looks at offices, retail and now residential.
Health and wellbeing has always been at the heart of Green certification schemes such as BREEAM, LEED and Ireland newest certification for the housing sector the Home Performance Index. The new WELL certification standard which focuses specifically on wellbeing is now sweeping the international property sector. Are there any contradictions between better health and wellbeing and carbon and energy savings and how do we resolve this. Can focusing on health and wellbeing stimulate better buildings, renovation and carbon savings?
What can you do to start practically measuring and improving the health and wellbeing of employees in your buildings? We look at some of the tools where facility managers, estate agents and others can get started on measuring and promoting the health and wellbeing impacts of their offices. Join us for a stimulating discussion on health and wellbeing in our buildings.
