    Hi,
    I would like to know more about what the committee or its sub-groups are doing, maybe through a more active website, blog or chat space.  I would also like to hear about members who are engaged in healthy materials and healthy workplace initiatives.  I just left my job as Director of Design at Harvard Business School, to work in healthy community planning.  At Harvard, we were working on removing harmful chemicals from our built environment and landscapes, in partnership with a consortium of for-profit companies and architectural firms.  We were also working on healthy lighting,  healthy office design and furniture standards, and commuting and work from home policies.   Part of the work was researching costs and benefits.  Any members interested in healthy workplace programs?

    Martha,

    I passed along your posting to some people here in Indianapolis who are associated with the WELL Building Standard - they are interested in talking more with you.

    Here is the link to the website for their organization and certification program: https://www.wellcertified.com
