2. BCA Green Mark Consultancy & SubmissionThe Green Mark certification scheme was launched by the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore in January 2005 and is a green building rating system designed to evaluate a building's environmental impact and performance. It provides a comprehensive framework for assessing the overall environmental performance of new and existing buildings to promote sustainable design, and best practices in construction and operations in buildings. There are different categories and tiers of certification for Non-residential Building (NRB) and Existing Non-residential Building (ENRB).
The future places greater emphasis on efforts to improve sustainability practices. With climate change as a pressing issue, it is the responsibility of each and every one of us to be prioritising sustainability standards. Attaining the Green Mark Certification can bolster the corporate image and resale value of the buildings.
A building with a Green Mark Certification will have facilitated the successful reduction in energy usage, have improved indoor quality for employees and put measures in place to maintain and continue lowered impact on the environment.

1. What exactly is the BCA Green Mark Scheme?
Established by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) in 2005, the Green Mark Scheme was introduced to gear Singapore's construction industry towards more environmentally friendly standards. The Green Mark Scheme will draw greater attention to sustainability practices in a more holistic manner - with focus in areas like climatically responsive design, energy conservation and efficiency as well as a better use of technology. Developers, building owners and government agencies for new and existing buildings, districts, parks, infrastructure and building interiors can apply for the Green Mark certification in Singapore.
2. How will it do so?
The Green Mark Scheme rates buildings on their environmental performance, prompting a future of leadership and improved practices to build an end-to-end cycle of sustainability. This can vary from building to building - be it commercial, retail or residential.
