What is BREEAM?

BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for masterplanning projects, infrastructure and buildings. It recognises and reflects the value in higher performing assets across the built environment lifecycle, from new construction to in-use and refurbishment.

BREEAM does this through third party certification of the assessment of an asset’s environmental, social and economic sustainability performance, using standards developed by BRE. This means BREEAM rated developments are more sustainable environments that enhance the well-being of the people who live and work in them, help protect natural resources and make for more attractive property investments.

CSC specific information related to the BREEAM recognition process

  • Link to the CSI Charter
  • Renewability
    The criterion of renewability is not applicable to concrete as a mineral material.
    Due to the nature of concrete sourcing and production out of various purely mineral ingredient materials, a 'renewal' process does not apply.
