Navigate your way through 3 of the most-used green certification systems – in less than 30 minutes.

Are you aligned with the green systems?

LEED, BREEAM & LBC are just some of the green rating systems that are becoming all the rage in construction. While it's easy to understand why; the same can't necessarily be said about understanding how they work and where your products fit it. Luckily, this e-book provides a smoother path to knowledge by giving you:


  • a glance at the future standards of business in construction;
  • insights on the LEED points and certification system;
  • intel on how the stars align in BREEAM;
  • the demands on design and building materials in LBC;
  • a run-down of how your products fit into LEED, BREEAM & LBC;
  • extra credits when conversing with green specifiers.

The point of LEED

LEED is a globally recognised assessment system designed to deliver triple-bottom-line returns for people, planet and profit. A project is analysed on 6 categories and awarded points that correlate to a LEED level: Platinum, Gold, Silver or Certified.

BREEAM deals with stars

Founded in 1989, BREEAM is the long-runner out of the bunch. The system is used worldwide and evaluates projects on ten parameters. The scheme uses certification bodies and licensed assessors to rate and award projects 1-6 stars (6= outstanding).

LBC: a positive challenge

LBC is one of the most rigorous standards for the built environment. Apart from achieving the 7 petals, a building needs to operate 12+ and have a proven positive impact on the places, communities and people to get fully certified.

Understand why LEED, BREEAM, LBC & other systems matter

This introduction to LEED, BREEAM & LBC is a condensed version of our e-book on green building certifications. Apart from the general what-is, the extended e-book also gives you:

  • insights on who’s driving the demand;
  • an architect's take on sustainability and BIM:
  • an understanding of how certifications may impact the future of investments in construction.

And as always – the resource won’t cost you a single pence, penny, cent, centavo or yen.
