BREEAM certification for sustainable buildings

18 June 2019

BREEAM stands for Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method. It is an assessment method to determine the sustainability performance of buildings and projects.

Buildings that contribute to well-being

BREEAM does this through third party certification of an asset’s environmental, social and economic sustainability performance, using standards developed by BRE. BREEAM rated buildings are more sustainable buildings that enhance the well-being of the people who live and work in them.

The relevance of window coverings

Interior window coverings are a perfect solution for creating healthy, comfortable and inspiring indoor spaces. High performance fabrics allow for perfect heat control and natural light management and as a result, contribute to visual and thermal comfort, acoustic performance, indoor air quality and energy-efficiency in buildings.

Our window covering solutions significantly contribute to 4 out of 10 BREEAM categories:

1. Management (MAN)

2. Health and Wellbeing (HEA)

3. Energy (ENE)

4. Transport (TRA)

5. Water (WAT)

6. Materials (MAT)

7. Waste (WST)

8. Land Use and Ecology (LE)

9. Pollution (POL)

10. Innovation (INN)
