The WELL Building Standard is an evidence-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring the performance of building features that impact health and wellbeing. WELL Certification begins with registration through WELL Online. Once registered, GBCI will assign a WELL Assessor to the project. The WELL Assessor is integral to the certification process.
By requiring the development of key performance indicators and a system for tracking and continuously improving them, ISO 14001, the International Organization for Standardization’s voluntary benchmark for environmental management, provides a strong foundation for measuring and analyzing environmental performance. Layering PEER on top of this robust groundwork “turbocharges” a project, ensuring sustainable power system performance and accelerating the transformation of our electricity sector.
