Sustainable development has become a global priority in almost all economies, brought on by increasingly dire weather phenomenon affecting more people than ever before along with a growing emphasis on healthier spaces spurred by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sustainability and health need not operate on separate tracks, they can be cohesively entwined to produce high performance structures which are both green and healthy. As we spend more than 90 percent of our time within buildings on average, designing for health and wellness is increasingly important. In fact, health and wellbeing guidelines exist in many green building rating tools, such as Green Mark 2021 (GM:2021), the latest version of Singapore’s national green building rating tool. Alongside energy performance, Health & Wellbeing is one of five sustainability outcomes in the GM:2021 standard, allowing green building projects to shape the design, construction, operation and retrofit of buildings that facilitate mental, physical, and social wellbeing of their occupants.

Under the Health & Wellbeing badge, projects that are certified under the WELL Building Standard will receive recognition and some exemption, leveraging the WELL standard’s evidence-based roadmap to assess exemplary performance in building health and wellbeing. Since 2014, WELL has been transforming buildings and organisations in ways that advance health and wellbeing to help people thrive. With the rise in focus on social sustainability as well as health, the WELL standard has been consistently updated to meet industry standards, evolving in its application, scalability and scope.

In issue 15.0 of SG Green, read about the latest updates to the WELL Building Standard, such as on WELL “ratings”, programmes that comprise a subset of WELL features but focused on specific areas or strategies. Some of the building project showcases in this issue are also WELL-certified, providing insight into what actually makes a building WELL. Other articles in this issue will also paint a picture on how the different segments of the built environment are approaching sustainability, utilising innovation and technology to drive their own green journeys.
