Baltics Office ViewPoint - Indoor Wellness Certificates August 2020
Workplace wellness has become a hot topic recently as occupiers become more aware of the role of the office environment in retaining talented workforce. At the same time, landlords see this as a new way to emphasize the quality of their projects in order to attract tenants. This ViewPoint covers certificates relating to indoor workspace only, namely Well, Fitwel, Reset, and the Leesman Index. Consequently, the most popular sustainability measurements – BREEAM and LEEDS – are not presented here.
The findings suggest that air is the most notable criteria determining productivity, satisfaction, and well-being.
Office developers in the Baltics have not yet engaged actively in obtaining such sustainability measurements. Nevertheless, the first certified projects have recently been or are about to be commissioned in the Baltics’ capital cities.
