Practice-based Tools 



LEED Integrative Process for Health Promotion (Pilot Credit)

In Phase II, GHP led development and launch of a health promotion ‘credit’ (based on principles of health impact assessment) for use within the LEED green building certification system by built environment project teams (e.g. architects, developers).


GRESB Health and Well-being Module

In Phase II, GHP collaborated with GRESB - a leading provider of ESG data (Environmental, Social, and Governance) for commercial real estate investors- to develop, launch, and evaluate health and well-being indicators for large-scale real estate portfolios. These first-of-kind health and well-being performance metrics for institutional-scale real estate investors were launched in 2016 as a stand-alone ‘module’ alongside GRESB’s primary real estate assessment tools.


Enterprise Green Communities Criteria - ‘Resident Health & Well-being’

GHP partnered with Enterprise Community Partners, one of the largest community development financial institutions in the U.S., to implement aspects of the health process as required elements in the 2015 Enterprise Green Communities Criteria for affordable housing development (see Green Communities Criteria 1.2a and 1.2b).
