What Industry Leaders are Saying

Richard Henderson
Head of Corporate Properties, Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo is committed to reducing our carbon footprint while continuing to design, build and operate spaces that add to the well-being of our employees and customers. We envision leveraging Fitwel to engage stakeholders to help drive continuous improvement, as well as raise awareness of the benefits of people-centric design and operations. Fitwel is well suited for this purpose due to its accessible language and ease of applicability over a large and diverse portfolio.

Allan Swaringen
President & CEO of JLL Income Property Trust

JLL Income Property Trust is proud to be recognized by Fitwel. It is a key indicator of our commitment to maintaining ESG principles that create tangible, long term benefits and impact and how we shape the future of real estate for a better world. We are proud to acquire core multifamily properties that not only align with our investment objectives, but our philosophy of owning properties that tenants will want to live in because they are healthy and inspiring.

Bon Ku, MD
Director, Health Design Lab, Thomas Jefferson University

COVID-19 thrust public health into the limelight, and increased awareness of how the spaces where we live, work, study, and socialize can impact our health and well-being. In a moment of pandemic crisis, health research became paramount—and the Fitwel Academic Advisory Groups rose to the challenge to craft a science-driven response using the best available data at hand. We are proud to have contributed to the pressing need to mitigate viral transmission in buildings, and we look forward to supporting the Center for Active Design's efforts to further evidence-based design now and into the future.
