Healthy buildings start with environmentally sound materials, products, and systems. But when it comes to designing with human health and wellbeing in mind, outside spaces are just as important. Buildings that combine both indoor and outdoor experiences are quickly becoming the gold standard for driving asset value through achieving ESG goals. Watch this webinar to hear expert perspectives on designing and operating buildings–and their sites–with nature in mind. Simon Turner, founder of Building Cognition, shares his expertise in air quality and other critical considerations for indoor spaces. Noah Wilson-Rich, PhD, CEO of The Best Bees Company, shares his expertise in living rooftops and on-premise pollinator habitats. Moderated by Vicki Worden, President & CEO of the Green Building Initiative, this panel discussion focuses on data-driven sustainability initiatives, and how they are making an impact on people and the planet.
