BREEAM certification provides a means of recognising and reflecting the value in higher performing assets. It also provides the ability to benchmark an asset’s performance & validate is sustainability credentials in line with the BREEAM requirements. But what does this mean in terms of an asset’s impact on key sustainability issues our society and the environment are facing today?
BREEAM certification provides value in demonstrating building performance & impact, but it also has a role to play in effectively communicating this in a way that is meaningful to asset investors, owners, users and the wider public. We must consider how we present building performance information so that we can understand it in a real-world context.
