Devan Valenti

Senior Manager, Asia Pacific, International WELL Building Institute

Based in Sydney, Devan is with the Asia Pacific team of WELL, where he provides technical and market development support to stakeholders across the region. Devan works alongside organisations to unlock the opportunities afforded by the WELL Building Standard and ensure that they remain at the forefront of the global health and well-being movement.

With a career spanning across three continents, Devan has worked exclusively in sustainability-related roles for leading private and not-for-profit organisations. Prior to joining IWBI, Devan was responsible for managing the largest overhaul in Green Star’s 20-year history, a three-year journey that involved input from over 2,000 key stakeholders. This experience deepened his knowledge on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) drivers within the property sector, as well as developed his ability to identify effective responses to capitalise on their opportunities and mitigate their risks. He now focuses on the intersection between rating tools and ESG to deliver successful outcomes for those looking to pursue WELL.

Devan has a Master’s degree in economic management sciences, in which his thesis focused on designing effective policy mechanisms to attract global investment into the clean energy sector. This qualification proved helpful when Devan worked as a senior sustainability consultant on some of Australia’s most ambitious net zero carbon projects and precincts.
