BCA Super Low Energy (SLE) Programme

BCA's Super Low Energy (SLE) Programme is the next wave of Singapore's green building movement.  It is aimed at pushing the envelope of environmental sustainability in Singapore by achieving a minimum of 60% energy efficiency improvement over the 2005 building codes. 

BCA introduced the BCA Green Mark for Super Low Energy (GM SLE) during International Green Building Conference 2018 (IGBC 2018) on 5 September as a recognition for developers and building owners who meet the criteria in addition to their Green Mark ratings achieved for the building.

It is applicable for new and existing non-residential buildings including commercial, industrial and institutional buildings as well as schools.

The two categories of buildings under GM SLE are: 

  • Super Low Energy Building (SLEB) 
  • Zero Energy Building (ZEB)

For more information on Green Mark for Super Low Energy Buildings:

To address the challenges and seize opportunities provided by Super Low Energy (SLE), BCA partnered with the industry and academia to jointly develop a Super Low Energy Buildings Technology Roadmap that charts the pathways towards SLE via development, demonstration and application of technologies. For more information, please refer to Super Low Energy Buildings (SLEB) Smart Hub.

BCA Green Mark certification supports green buildings movement by encouraging sustainable buildings in Singapore built environment. Moving forward, BCA encourages Super Low Energy (SLE) Buildings and Healthier Workplaces.
