National Healthy Homes Month

This month (June) U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) kicks off activities for this year’s National Healthy Homes Month (NHHM), an annual campaign highlighting the direct link between housing quality and residents’ health.

National Healthy Homes Month serves to educate families and communities about the importance of creating and maintaining a healthy home by addressing home-based hazards, including reducing moisture and mold, improving ventilation, controlling pests, and maintaining indoor air quality.

New Ventilation Standards

Recently, both the CDC and ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) released new health-based ventilation targets following decades of work.  According to Joseph Allen, Associate Professor at Harvard and Director of Harvard Healthy Buildings Program, “this is a massive step forward toward advancing the healthy buildings era for all.”

According to the CDC,  “Building owners and operators can take steps to improve ventilation and help prevent respiratory illnesses from spreading in indoor spaces.”


LEED and WELL Dual Certification

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) has expanded their strategic partnership to accelerate the adoption of buildings that prioritize people, communities and the natural environment. The partnership will focus on streamlining the process for achieving dual WELL and LEED certifications signaling that sustainability and health should not be separate pursuits. It also reinforces organizational objectives such as elevating equity in the built environment and opening up new sources of capital for green and healthy buildings.
