Davina Rooney joins IWBI Governance Council

The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) has appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Green Building Council of Australia, Davina Rooney, and Senior Director of ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) at S&P Dow Jones Indices, Mona Naqvi, to the IWBI Governance Council.

The Governance Council helps uphold the integrity of IWBI’s certification frameworks and accelerates the broader movement driving their adoption.

“We’re deeply honored to have individuals with such extraordinary expertise that correlates to what’s next for the WELL movement,” said IWBI Executive Chairman Rick Fedrizzi.

“The outstanding roster of our Governance Council represents WELL’s strong grounding in scientific evidence, its relevance across industries and sectors and its commitment to the health and well-being of people.”

Rooney says she is excited to join the Council and see the impact that the recently launched WELL v2 will have in the market.

“Our remit couldn’t be any more important or urgent than it is right now, as we come together to help in the fight against COVID-19 and work to ensure our buildings focus on better health outcomes for people,” she says.

Rooney brings expertise in the green building space to the Council, while Naqvi’s experience in leading strategy for developing ESG indices will help IWBI bridge the gap between a holistic understanding of public health and its significance to the market.

Naqvi says it’s an honour to join the Council, especially when public health is such a priority at the moment.

The International WELL Building Institute is leading the global movement to transform buildings, communities and organisations in ways that help people thrive. WELL v2 is the most recent version of its popular WELL Building Standard, and the WELL Community Standard pilot is a district scale rating system that sets a new global benchmark for healthy communities.
