In 2014, we launched the inaugural version of the WELL Building Standard™ with the aim to improve human health and wellness through better buildings. And today, our mission remains the same – to expand health and wellness to as many people as possible, in the most effective and scalable way.

With the launch of the WELL Community Standard, IWBI is ushering in a new era of fostering and cultivating neighborhoods, districts and other communities that have health and wellness attributes built into their DNA.
