Increasing Adoption of Green Building Rating Systems

Green building rating systems are a type of building certification system that rates or rewards relative levels of compliance or performance with specific environmental goals and requirements. As part of the green building movement, these systems have become increasingly commonplace in the region.

Most countries now have a domestic green building rating system which is set up with a nationalistic focus, keeping local standards and codes in mind. Examples of these are the Green Mark Scheme for Singapore, TREES for Thailand, Greenship for Indonesia and Green Star for Australia & New Zealand.

In addition to these, international Green building rating systems like US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy Environmental Design (LEED) and Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies (EDGE) are increasingly gaining traction and adoption across more projects with wider recognition in the region. This trend is expected to continue to grow and develop further as new policies are put in place.
