Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate social responsibility has increasingly become the norm in recent years. Therefore, sustainable building and sustainable zoning have many advantages. For example, you can think of:

  • Less energy consumption
  • Less maintenance
  • Higher property value and
  • A more pleasant environment to work in which leads to less absenteeism.

This is why companies often have their buildings or projects assessed using BREEAM’s assessment method.

What is BREEAM?

BREEAM stands for Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method and is the most important and widely used sustainability label internationally.

The BREEAM-NL method includes several labels:

– BREEAM-NL New Construction and Renovation


– BREAAM-NL Area Development

– BREAAM-NL Demolition and Dismantling

The system uses qualitative weighting in which buildings are rated on nine different sustainability categories. As an overall score, a building or area is then given 1 to 5 stars. Where 5 represents outstanding.

We are happy to help you with certification

Are you considering BREEAM-NL certification? If so, we can work with a certified partner to make a significant contribution within the Land Use and Ecology (LE) category.

It is advisable to conduct an inventory in advance so that you can take into account the plants and animals and the related legal provisions. For independent advice, we will put you in touch with an ecological consulting firm. To positively influence your certification, you can make adjustments that will positively influence the score. This allows you to create or modify spaces in and around the building so that plants and animals can use them. Consider installing accommodation facilities for bats, swifts, house sparrows and insects. Both temporary and permanent facilities are possible. A flower-rich meadow combined with an insect hotel for bees and butterflies is also an option.
