    In a world where we spend the majority of our time indoors, the quality of our built environments profoundly impacts our health and well-being. Recognizing this intrinsic connection between health and the built environment, the International Healthy Building Accord has been drawn up to focus collective action, rallying global leaders across industries to prioritize and promote healthy buildings. 

    Spearheaded by the International WELL Building Institute and fortified by the contributions of leading health authorities, this Accord outlines a roadmap for the future of healthier built environments worldwide.

    Last week, on the occasion of a visit from Jason Hartke, Executive Vice President of Advocacy and Policy at the International WELL Building Institute, the iAIR Institute became a proud signatory of the International Healthy Building Accord.

    The Accord acts as a summons to policymakers and health leaders, urging them to embrace their responsibility in advancing the cause of healthy buildings. It highlights the crucial importance of strategic policy actions and seeks to garner support from a diverse array of stakeholders, ranging from public health professionals to architects, engineers, and business leaders.

    The International Healthy Building Accord is a statement of our collective resolve to prioritize human health and well-being. With the iAIR Institute bridging and connecting the diverse stakeholders, it can drive global change and translate the vision of the Accord into tangible outcomes.

    By signing the International Healthy Building Accord, organizations commit to a future where the places we live, work, and play are designed with our well-being at the forefront. This collaborative effort promises to transform the landscape of our built environment, making health-conscious design and construction the new standard.
