BCA’s Green Mark Award: 376 building projects

19 August 2020 — More building owners are aiming for higher tier Green Mark Certifications (Green Mark Platinum and above), an indication of the industry’s awareness of the positive impact of Green buildings and recognising them as key in our efforts to fight climate change.

A total of 376 projects, including 16 overseas ones, were awarded the BCA Green Mark Award this year. Of these, 22 projects have obtained the highest level Green Mark Super Low Energy Building (GM SLEB) Award, including three Positive Energy and three Zero Energy buildings.

The number of non-residential building projects obtaining higher tier Green Mark certification (Green Mark Platinum and above) has doubled to 149 over the past five years.

On the international front, the BCA Green Mark scheme has received strong acceptance since its launch internationally 15 years ago. To date, some 305 projects across 16 countries have attained the Green Mark certification.
