BREEAM

What is BREEAM?

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method) is the world's leading and most widely used environmental assessment method for buildings, with over 115,000 buildings certified and nearly 700,000 registered. It sets the standard for best practice in sustainable design and has become the de facto measure used to describe a building's environmental performance. Credits are awarded in ten categories according to performance. These credits are then added together to produce a single overall score on a scale of Pass, Good, Very Good, Excellent and Outstanding. The operation of BREEAM is overseen by an independent Sustainability Board, representing a wide cross-section of construction industry stakeholders.

Aims of BREEAM:

  • To mitigate the impacts of buildings on the environment
  • To enable buildings to be recognised according to their environmental benefits
  • To provide a credible, environmental label for buildings
  • To stimulate demand for sustainable buildings

Objectives  of BREEAM:

  • To provide market recognition to low environmental impact buildings
  • To ensure best environmental practice is incorporated in buildings
  • To set criteria and standards surpassing those required by regulations and challenge the market to provide innovative solutions that minimise the environmental impact of buildings
  • To raise the awareness of owners, occupants, designers and operators of the benefits of buildings with a reduced impact on the environment

To allow organisations to demonstrate progress towards corporate environmental objectives.
