BCA GREEN MARK ASSESSMENT CRITERIA AND ONLINE APPLICATION

BCA Green Mark is a green building rating system to evaluate a building for its environmental impact and performance. It provides a comprehensive framework for assessing the overall environmental performance of new and existing buildings to promote sustainable design, construction and operations practices in buildings.

Under the assessment framework for new buildings, developers and design teams are encouraged to design and construct green, sustainable buildings which are more climatic responsive, energy effective, resource efficient, smarter and have healthier indoor environments. As for existing buildings, the building owners and operators are encouraged to meet their sustainable operations goals and to reduce adverse impacts of their buildings on the environment and occupant health over the entire building life cycle. Beside buildings, the assessment criteria evaluates energy efficiency, water efficiency, environment protection, indoor environmental quality and other green/innovative features of districts, parks, infrastructure and building interiors.

The assessment process aims to verify the relevant reports and documentary evidences such that the building project meets the intents of the criteria and certification level.

The total number of points obtained will provide an indication of the environmental friendliness of the building design and operation. Depending on the overall assessment and point scoring, the building will be certified to have met the respective Green Mark rating.
