The WELL Working group – within the Hungary Green Building Council – was founded in 2019 with the mission to encourage the development of certified and healthy buildings in Hungary. By sharing experiences, creating WELL-themed programs, webinars, trainings and professional recommendations, every stakeholder can get closer to a healthier built environment

Our goal is to provide professional support for a health-promoting building and community culture. In addition, we are working hard to make WELL Certifications more accessible to projects in Hungary.

WELL is the leading tool for advancing health and well-being in buildings globally. Register your office, building or other space to leverage WELL’s flexible framework for improving health and human experience through design.

The WELL Building Standard is a vehicle for buildings and organizations to deliver more thoughtful and intentional spaces that enhance human health and well-being. Backed by the latest scientific research, WELL includes strategies that aim to advance health by setting performance standards for design interventions, operational protocols and policies and a commitment to fostering a culture of health and well-being. Built on the pioneering foundation of the first version of the WELL Building Standard (WELL v1), WELL v2 draws expertise from thousands of WELL users, practitioners, medical professionals, public health experts and building scientists around the world.
