Everything you need to know about BREEAM certification

Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in our society. This applies not only to our daily activities, but also to the way we build and live. The BREEAM certificate plays an important role in this. In this blog, you can read more about this certificate and what it means for sustainable building and living.

What is the BREAAM certificate?

BREEAM stands for Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method. It is a certification system that assesses the sustainability of buildings. It was developed by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) in the UK and is now used worldwide.

BREEAM certification assesses buildings on various aspects, such as energy consumption, water use, waste management, transport, material use, health and comfort. The aim is to make buildings more sustainable and thereby have a positive impact on the environment and the health of their occupants.

How does the certification system work?

The BREEAM certification system works with different assessment categories, each of which yields a number of credits. The more credits a building scores, the higher its sustainability performance. There are different levels of certification: Pass, Good, Very Good, Excellent and Outstanding.

The assessment looks at different aspects of the building:

  • Management;
  • Health and well-being;
  • Energy;
  • Transport;
  • Water;
  • Materials;
  • Waste;
  • Land use and ecology;
  • Pollution;
  • Innovation.

What are the benefits of BREEAM certification?

Obtaining BREEAM certification has several advantages. Firstly, it contributes to a more sustainable society. Buildings that are built and designed sustainably have a lower ecological footprint, thus contributing to a better living environment.

In addition, BREEAM certification can also bring financial benefits. For example, a sustainable building has lower energy costs and can therefore be a more attractive investment for investors and tenants.

Finally, obtaining the BREEAM certificate can also contribute to the reputation of the builder or owner of the building. A sustainable building is seen as a positive initiative and can contribute to a positive image.
