Green and Super Low Energy buildings reduce usage of energy, water and materials while improving indoor environmental quality for better health and wellbeing.
What BCA is doing to promote green buildings
Our national target is to have at least 80% of buildings in Singapore to be green by 2030. We are running multiple schemes and programmes to create a greener built environment in Singapore, including:
| Green Mark Certification
A framework to assess the overall environmental performance, such as energy usage, of new and existing buildings.
| Green Mark Awards
Recognition of the most sustainably built and operated buildings in Singapore.
| Back to School (B2S)
A programme for students in Institutes of Higher Learning (IHL) to help their alma mater schools attain Green Mark certification.
| BCA-SGBC Behavioural Change Programme
A programme developed by BCA and the Singapore Green Building Council to help building occupants and end-users adopt sustainable habits and reduce environmental impact.
Super Low Energy (SLE) buildings
SLE buildings are the most energy-efficient buildings in Singapore, using renewable energy and other smart energy management methods.
You can identify SLE buildings by these awards:
- Green Mark Platinum (Super Low Energy)
- Green Mark Platinum (Zero Energy)
