Watson HQ Earns International Sustainability Ratings
Following a two-year development process Watson's New York City HQ was awarded WELL Certified™ Gold, the WELL Health and Safety Rating, and 3-Star Seal Oceanic Global Blue Standard. The WELL global framework for buildings and organizations certifies science-based performance standards, protocols and policies that foster a people-first culture of health and well-being including multiple air quality measures. The Oceanic Global Blue Standard further recognizes Watson's commitment to sustainability through our elimination of single-use plastics, responsible management of waste, and comprehensive operations reviews. The project was led by Dr. Christine Bruckner, FAIA, 1988 Watson Fellow and global sustainability expert, and Erika Wang, 2017 Watson Fellow and Watson Project Manager.
