WSP uses the Fitwel Certification System, Advancing Healthy Workplaces Globally

The Center for Active Design announces WSP, a leading globally recognized professional services firm, as a committed Fitwel Champion. WSP, which employs approximately 36,000 people in more than 500 offices across 40 countries worldwide, will certify some of their offices with Fitwel in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Fitwel is the premier building certification system for optimizing building design and operations to promote health. Through its adoption of the Fitwel certification system, WSP further solidifies its position as a market leader in supporting workplace wellness for employees, clients, and surrounding communities.

“WSP Canada’s Sustainability & Energy team is proud to use Fitwel in order to help promote health and wellness not only within our own offices, but also with our clients and the industry as a whole,” says Regan Smith, Director of Sustainability & Energy. “As a global leader in green building benchmarking and certification services, WSP is always looking for ways to improve the performance of buildings in ways that benefit both people and the environment. We see Fitwel as a way to further the discussion of health and wellness in buildings.”
