BREEAM's aim is to promote and influence sustainable construction practices across the globe. As part of this, we engage directly with selected organisations to assist them in developing their own national sustainability assessment method.
A national scheme will be adapted to local social, cultural, climatic etc conditions, translated in the local language with local assessors and aligned with the country's building regulations. Such Schemes can act as a mass market driver to influence the local construction industry to go above and beyond building regulations. Once we have approved a new scheme for a specific country, we will sign a Framework Agreement with a National Scheme Operator, which may be a government body, a national Green Building Council or other relevant organisation.
For further information on how to create a BREEAM affiliated Scheme for your country, please go to the National Scheme Operators page.
