BREEAM assesses sustainability in the broadest sense
Sustainability is not just about saving energy. It is also about health. BREEAM-NL assesses buildings according to nine sustainability criteria. Thus, it is an integral sustainability certification. Each of these categories of land use and environment protection, pollution, management, health, energy, transport, water, materials, waste, have their own assessment criteria for respective scores. This results in an overall score expressed in stars.
BREEAM-NL is used for offices, retail outlets, schools, industrial buildings, residentials, data centers.
