If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you need to know BCA Green Mark scheme,
The BCA Green Mark Scheme was launched in January 2005 as an initiative to move Singapore’s construction industry towards more environment-friendly buildings. It is intended to promote sustainability in the built environment and raise environmental awareness among developers, designers and builders when they start project conceptualisation and design, as well as during construction.
Buildings are awarded the BCA Green Mark based on five key criteria:
- Energy Efficiency
- Water Efficiency
- Site/Project Development & Management
- Good Indoor Environmental Quality & Environmental Protection
