Why does this matter?

The world is evolving rapidly to include the intersection of sustainability and
wellness at the core of building design.

We spend 90% of our time indoors. More and more, we are looking to be healthier
while in the indoor environment. Designers and architects are responding to meet this trend, developing spaces that prioritize the health of the occupants and meet emerging wellness standards.

Suppliers and building operators have to stay on top of the new technologies, systems, and building products that promote sustainability and address occupant health.

A number of markets are leading the charge in incorporating wellness and sustainability in their designs, including the following:




Healthcare & senior living

Education & public services

Stats and figures:

• Healthy and sustainable construction is a trillion-dollar industry that is doubling every three years
• The global wellness economy is a $4.2 trillion market, growing ~13% p.a. since 2015
• Globally, green building projects expected to almost double from 2018 to 2021
