Grounded in the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development, WorldGBC’s Health & Wellbeing Framework drives healthy and equitable buildings in harmony with nature to create better places for people.
Developed through a multi-year global consultation, WorldGBC’s Health & Wellbeing Framework is a comprehensive education and advocacy tool. The principles of the Framework champion a healthy and equitable built environment to a global audience, considering a holistic approach to health at all stages of the supply chain.
Convening expertise from across the value chain, the Framework is published as an executive report and live digital tool. An innovation of this work is a cross-sectoral analysis across the entire building and construction lifestyle — redefining the scope of health for all people and their buildings, cities and communities.
With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing the link between the built environment and human health into focus, the Framework’s six principles span indoor air quality, human rights in the supply chain, climate change resilience and more.
