SHANGHAI, October 23, 2019 /3BL Media/-- The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) today announced a group of Asia-based leaders who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in advancing health and well-being for people through WELL projects. Thirty-nine people, including those selected from the community of WELL Accredited Professionals (WELL AP) and WELL Faculty members, are honored during an IWBI Asia awards celebration taking place during Greenbuild China this week in Shanghai.

The award ceremony in Shanghai precedes IWBI’s 2019 awards celebration set for November 18 in Atlanta, Ga. during the global version of Greenbuild Conference and Expo.

“IWBI recognizes that WELL is a journey made possible by the commitment and dedication of our community,” said Xue Ya, president of IWBI Asia.  “Thanks to the passion and leadership of our community, we are expanding the global WELL footprint in over 58 countries and moving great progress every day.”

In recognition of those who have gone above and beyond, IWBI has awarded exemplary individuals who played influential roles in advancing WELL around the globe.

To date, there are now over 200 WELL Faculty members and nearly 10,000 WELL APs and those on their journey toward achieving their accreditation. Today, WELL crossed the 456 million square feet threshold for registered and certified projects across 58 countries.

The Asia-based recipients of the IWBI 2019 leadership award have all clearly demonstrated their outstanding contribution to propel the WELL movement forward.
