Are you looking to achieve Green Mark Certification? This green building rating system was created in January 2005 to rate the environmental performance and impact of a building. Basically, it aims to promote sustainable design and the best practices in building operation and construction.

If you are developing a new building or planning major retrofitting for an existing building, you would probably be looking at the possibility of achieving Green Mark certification.

Who needs Green Mark certification?

The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) started an initiative called the BCA Green Mark Scheme in 2005 to create a more sustainable environment in Singapore’s largely urban landscape. The initiative promotes sustainable design, and good practices in building construction and operations. The Green Mark Scheme assesses in detail each building’s energy efficiency, environmental impact and performance.

If you are constructing a new building, you are therefore encouraged to construct and design your project to be more climate-responsive, more resource-efficient, and more energy-efficient. If you are retrofitting an older building, you are encouraged to reduce the building’s energy consumption and carbon footprint.

As part of Singapore’s commitment to improve on environmental sustainability, new public sector buildings are now required to achieve Green Mark certification. New buildings that have air-conditioned areas of more than 5,000 sqm are required to achieve Green Mark Platinum certification.

Achieving the Green Mark certification will transform developments into more energy efficient buildings. Suggestions under the Green Mark points system will improve overall environmental performance of buildings. This includes indoor air-quality and comfort, renewable energy, water efficiency, waste reduction, public transport accessibility, levels beyond minimum standard and environmental management practice. On the practical side of things, this will set your building apart from others, and increase the building's resale and leasing value.

Develop energy-efficient buildings

To achieve Green Mark certification, there are various energy-related requirements and other green requirements the building has to comply with. This includes energy efficiency, water efficiency, sustainable operation and management, indoor environmental quality, and other green features.

The assessment criteria for this certification comes with a comprehensive verification process and scoring system to figure out how environmentally friendly the operation and design of the building is. You may check out the necessary criteria here.
