The Biophilic Map is a databank for case studies which have implemented Biophilic Design at the core of their design process. Biophilic Design is known for its effects of indoor environmental quality and therefore on building users wellbeing.
The map recognizes exemplary projects in articulating and applying Biophilic Design principles to the built environment. The Biophilic Map is hosted by the International Living Future Institute’s Biophilic Design Initiative.

The impact of building renovation on health, well-being and productivity could improve the lives of more than 200 million Europeans. This set of publications, developed by BPIE and commissioned by Buildings 2030, takes an important step towards defining, measuring, quantifying and monetising the impact of indoor environmental quality in schools, hospitals and offices. The findings reveal a major business opportunity to invest in people-centric renovation of existing buildings.

A good Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) encompassing air quality, thermal comfort, lighting and acoustics, is a cornerstone to ensure health, comfort, wellbeing and productivity of the building occupants, who spend around 90% of their time indoor. Building occupants can thus provide important feedback on how buildings perform. The way they perceive the indoor environmental conditions can affect their comfort, health, productivity.
