SINGAPORE (April 25, 2022) — LaSalle Investment Management (“LaSalle”) is pleased to announce it has earned the WELL Health-Safety Rating on 41 logistics and commercial properties in Asia Pacific through the International WELL Building Institute (“IWBI”). They include 8 properties in Australia, 16 properties in China, 16 properties in Japan and one property in Singapore.
The WELL Health-Safety Rating is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all new and existing building and space types focusing on operational policies, maintenance protocols, stakeholder engagement and emergency plans to address a post-COVID-19 environment now and into the future. Designed to empower owners and operators across large and small businesses alike to take the necessary steps in order to prioritize the health and safety of their staff, visitors and stakeholders, the WELL Health-Safety Rating can help guide users in preparing their spaces for re-entry in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, instilling confidence in those who come through the building as well as the broader community.
Keith Fujii, LaSalle Head of Asia Pacific, said: “By embracing the WELL Health-Safety standard across our Asia Pacific portfolios, we are taking a further step to create a safe and considerate environment for our tenants and their customers. This achievement reiterates LaSalle’s commitment to investing in and managing assets that have a truly positive impact on public health and safety.”
Tom Miller, LaSalle Head of Development and Sustainability, Asia Pacific, added: “We are looking forward to working with IWBI to extend this certification program to many more of LaSalle’s assets in Asia Pacific in the future.”
In order to achieve WELL Health-Safety Rating, the properties implemented features such as improved air and water quality management, health service resources, emergency preparedness programs, enhanced cleaning and sanitation procedures, and increased stakeholder engagement and communication.
