Answering Your COVID-19 Certification Questions

What sustainability certification do I choose that also helps alleviate my COVID-19 concerns?

Lately, we’ve been asked this question by several clients. To help simplify, we’ve created the matrix below which compares LEED, Fitwel, WELL and RESET.

To address COVID-19 directly, we recommend first adopting the guidelines created by the CDC. From there, a certification can be a tool to further solidify those health-focused strategies, have them verified by a third party, and in turn market your efforts.

The matrix below highlights potential COVID-19 strategies that can be adopted above CDC guidelines. We recommend reviewing to see which certification best aligns with your current goals in optimizing employee health, attraction, retention and productivity.

For any questions related to sustainability certifications, feel free to contact me (tzelazny@esdglobal.com).
