Data and reporting for certifications

1. BREEAM

BREEAM is a sustainability certification developed to achieve environmentally sustainable buildings with minimal environmental impact.
It provides a framework for investors and clients to assess the value, green image, and healthy living and working environment.

 

BREEAM has various certifications, some examples include:

BREEAM New Construction

BREEAM In-Use

BREEAM Refurbishment and Fit Out (RFO)

BREEAM Communities

 

The certification is based on a sustainability score with credits awarded to your building by a BREEAM Assessor.

 

The BREEAM certificate assesses the sustainability of a building based on ten environmental aspects:

  1. Waste

  2. Water

  3. Energy

  4. Pollution

  5. Innovation

  6. Transport

  7. Management

  8. Materials

  9. Health & Wellbeing

  10. Land Use & Ecology
     

Each environmental aspect is divided into sub-aspects with a fixed score. The final sustainability score determines the certification level: pass, good, very good, excellent, or outstanding.
