The UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) and partners published a report on the links between green buildings and health, wellbeing and productivity in the retail sector on 29 January 2016.
The report sets out a framework for making health and wellbeing aspects of sustainable buildings more “accessible, personal and actionable for the retail industry.” It is “the result of a task group process that has been led by the UK Green Building Council, drawing on leadership from member companies in the UK and on international leadership from a global retail group.”
The report recognises that “buildings are fundamentally for people. They should enhance our quality of life, whether at home or at work, or engaged in other activities – including leisure and retail. In fact, [they] would argue that a building is not truly “green” if it does not work for people.”
