The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and the International Well Building Institute (IWBI) are pleased to announce a memorandum of understanding enabling future collaboration to improve the quality of our indoor environments through improved lighting design.
The lighting community has a heightened focus on non-energy related benefits of light. Americans spend most of their time indoors yet our buildings often fail to realize the role that quality lighting systems have on our visual, mental and biological health. Both organizations share a desire to transform our buildings and communities into spaces that enhance health and wellness.
The IES and IWBI have agreed to promote and support future joint programs, guidelines and metrics by means of input from technical experts, and development of appropriate IES standards and procedures. Potential research projects and increased participation in committee activities are anticipated.
