Material Health for People and Planet

Materials shape our experiences of the built environment.

As a member of the WELL Materials Advisory, Mara and industry leaders discuss the importance of aligning around a common materials framework to support shared goals of promoting health for people and planet. They provide feedback on the best ways to advance material health in the global market.
