BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is a multi-attribute green building verification, rating and certification system. It is based on standards developed by the UK-based Building Research Establishment Ltd (BRE) and is the world's longest established green building certification system, used in over 90 countries.
BREEAM is a global sustainability assessment method for masterplanning projects, infrastructure and buildings and sustainability certification of buildings. It is applied through on-site independent third-party verification across the built environment life cycle – new construction, in-use, and refurbishment.
BREEAM sets benchmarks for property development projects and best practice standards for the environmental performance of buildings.
