A green mark certification is a Singapore government effort that certifies a building as a green build after an assessment of its environmental impact and performance. It provides a comprehensive framework for evaluating the entire environmental performance of new and existing buildings in order to encourage sustainable design, construction, and building operations.
Importance of green mark certification
The first and foremost is environmental preservation; green mark certification permits a building’s environment to be clean and green in terms of energy consumption, as well as raising awareness of the need of environmental preservation.
Another benefit or point of importance is the meaningful differentiation of buildings in the real estate market; one can distinguish between different types of buildings based on the mark.
Green mark accreditation entails not just energy savings, but also reductions in the use of energy, water, and material resources.
The Green Mark accreditation is critical for ensuring indoor health and well-being.
Who can apply for green mark certification
For new and existing buildings, districts, parks, infrastructure, and building interiors, developers, building owners, and government organisations.
The certificate’s criterion
- Design that responds to the weather
- Energy efficiency of a building
- Stewardship of natural resources
