BREEAM & LEED are environmental assessment methods for buildings, which can contribute to the buildings overall green credit rating. 



BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is the world's leading environmental assessment method for buildings and was first launched in 1990 by BRE in the UK. From that point over 250,000 buildings have been certified all over the world.

The main goal of BREEAM is setting a standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation. It is a comprehensive measurement for building performance that helps achieve best practice. BREEAM was first launched in the UK but since then has been adopted by many countries.

A recent analysis has shown that our products and solutions can positively impact and contribute up to 50% of a BREEAM Assessment. 


LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the world's second most widely adopted environmental assessment method launched in 2000 by the United States Green Building Council (USBGC) with over 25,000 projects now certified.

LEED is a comprehensive and flexible method that addresses the entire building lifecycle. Today, it is used in over 140 countries worldwide but is still most used and applicable in the US. The newest version of LEED (LEED v4) was officially launched at Green Build 2013 in Philadelphia.

Our products and solutions can also have a positive impact on LEED Version 4 - helping achieve up to a total of 53 points available in the assessment procedure. 

Major differences between BREEAM and LEED include:

BREEAM and LEED are similar that they are both environmental assessment methods for the building but they also have their differences. BREEAM and LEED have various credits available in different sections.
