The BCA Green Mark 2021 (GM: 2021) is an internationally recognised green building certification scheme tailored for the tropical climate. It encourages the industry and professionals to collaborate and develop green building solutions, raising Singapore’s built environment’s sustainability standards. BCA Green Mark 2021 (GM: 2021) aims to raise our standards in energy performance and place greater emphasis on other sustainability outcomes:
- Designing for maintainability,
- Reducing embodied carbon across a building’s life cycle,
- Using smart technologies,
- Enhancing a building’s resilience to climate change and;
- Creating healthier environments for building users.
Additionally, the new scheme aims to promote outcomes that are aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
GM: 2021 scheme, which was pilot launched in April 2021 as part of Singapore Green Building Masterplan, had concluded the exercise after extensive consultation with key industry stakeholders and partners including Singapore Green Building Council. GM: 2021 will take effect from 1 November 2021.
