Our contributions to building green labelling

What are green building labelling schemes?

Sustainable construction is a worldwide major trend. When we know that buildings are responsible for 39% of worldwide CO2 emissions, it is indeed the right way to go. Building certifications are a proof that buildings have been designed to reduce their footprint on the planet and increase positive impact for the people. The most known is LEED, as it is recognised internationally.

 

LEED


LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification programme that recognises the best construction strategies and practices.


Why do you need to certify? 


•    It enhances the commercial value of your real estate project and is a valuable asset for attracting future investors. 
•    Having your building LEED certified is also a way of optimising your energy efficiency and reducing your operating costs for water and electricity.


What are the criteria for LEED certification?


LEED certification criteria are organised around 6 main themes: site development, water management, energy performance, use and management of materials and resources, indoor environmental quality and innovation. Subject to meeting the mandatory prerequisites for each of these themes and obtaining a minimum number of points, a LEED-certified building can reach 4 levels: Certified, Platinum, Gold and Silver.
