Healthy Building Summit, August 14th, 7:30 AM - 12:00 PM, Le Meridien Cambridge-MIT, MA
Event Description

In 2018, the World Green Building Council reported that buildings designed for occupant wellness reported healthier, happier, and more productive employees. One Harvard University study even found that better air quality in office environments was linked with higher cognitive function in occupants.

The data shows that healthy buildings are not a frivolous expense. In fact, they can directly improve the bottom line of many organizations. Yet from Health Product Declarations (HPD) to Red Lists, WELL to FitWell, and LEED to the Living Building Challenge, the avenues for pursuing healthy buildings for your occupants can be overwhelming.

We want to empower you with healthy building strategies so that the people who occupy your buildings, as your employees, your tenants, or your clients can be productive and feel great in an optimal working environment.

For our Healthy Building Summit, we have gathered an expert panel from top corporations and institutions. Join us for a hot breakfast and converse with your colleagues about healthy buildings. Afterwards, our panel will spearhead a discussion, engaging the audience with provocative questions and information on the science and engineering of healthy buildings.
