Less paperwork for dual LEED and WELL applicants

Apr 13, 2023 | Public | 0 comments


A new agreement means less paperwork for applicants pursuing LEED and WELL certification for the same building. The Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) and the International Well Building Institute (IWBI) have introduced a streamlined process for submitting documentation.

“It builds upon our shared commitment to driving positive health outcomes across the built environment,” says Peter Templeton, president and chief executive officer of GBCI and the U.S. Green Building Council.”

New guidance documents and online tools highlight the credits that are applicable for both programs and create a pathway for claiming them. WELL version 2 can be matched with LEED version 4 or v4.1 for building design and construction (BD&C) or interior design and construction (ID&C).

“This new pathway strengthens synergies between LEED and WELL,” says Rachel Hodgdon, the IWBI’s president and chief executive officer. “This strategic partnership underscores that human health and planetary health are inextricably linked.”
