Why you need to attend

Singapore’s 3rd Green Building Masterplan has identified the need to measure the environmental impact of buildings through its carbon footprint. The BCA Green Mark scheme will thus introduce the reporting of embodied carbon as a criteria for new buildings.

SGBC’s Singapore Green Building Product (SGBP) labelling scheme will be supporting the changes to the BCA Green Mark scheme by including the carbon emissions of building products as a key criterion for assessing the environmental performance of products.

Course Overview

Jointly organised by SGBC and BCA’s Centre for Sustainable Buildings and Construction (CSBC), the course is specially designed for the Building Industry. It provides an in-depth understanding of the carbon footprint of buildings and the products and materials therein. The course will impart the skills to enable participants to assess the environmental impact of their buildings and products. Delivered through both classroom and hands-on practice, participants will learn robust and reliable methodologies in compliance with international standards to effectively communicate environmental performance of building projects and products.
