It's About Health + Well-Being

The definition of sustainability is continually being stretched, especially for the built environment. Increasingly, companies are investing more resources into the health & well-being of their employees.

We’re frequently asked how Shaw Contract products contribute to the WELL Building Standard focusing on people and healthy workspaces.



What is the WELL Building Standard?

The WELL Building Standard® measures, certifies, and monitors the performance of building features that impact health & well-being. The International WELL Building Institute™ upholds the standard, which operates around ten concepts.

Flooring and WELL

Flooring covers a substantial area in the building environment and can contribute to environmental credits. Our sustainable philosophies complement several areas within the ten concepts identified in the WELL Building Standard®.

Since the standard is based on occupants’ experiences, flooring can facilitate meaningful experiences and please the senses. From beauty of design, to acoustics, to safe ingredients, Shaw Contract's flooring products can help a project manager reinvent a space’s experience.


Explore our EcoWorx® carpet tile aligned with the WELL Building Standard, endorsed through Works With WELL, crafting spaces that prioritize both health and productivity.

Shaw is also pursuing the WELL Equity Rating, which was designed to help organisations act on their diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) and accessibility goals and improve company culture and employee health.
