New Report Helps Leverage the Overlap between WELL and LEED

IWBI’s new guidance reduces documentation for projects pursuing dual certification.

May 16, 2017

A new “crosswalk” document aims to support the efficient, simultaneous application of the LEED Rating System credits and WELL Building Standard. The report—published by International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) in collaboration with U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI)—shows how LEED credits and WELL features overlap and align.

Which credits earn which features (and vice versa)

The document contains sections mapping out how LEED credits correspond to WELL “features” in each of the three LEED rating systems for new and existing buildings and interiors: BD+C, O+M, and ID+C.
