Structure of the CASBEE
methodology: building a life-cycle and four basic tools for sustainability assessment
real estate market, properties with a high LEED certification are often considered to be more valuable, but there has been no indication in Japan that the CASBEE
evaluation will be reflected in its market value.
To date, most sustainably-aware countries have their own energy performance certificate: BREEAM (in the UK, including Wales), DGNB (in Germany), HQE (in France), LEED (in the USA), BEAM (in Hong Kong), CASBEE
Green Building Council (USGBC); BREEAM (Building Research Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method) in the United Kingdom; Japan's CASBEE
(Comprehensive Assessment System for Building Environmental Efficiency); LEED Canada; and Green Star in Australia.
We're looking at LEED, BREEAM (the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), and CASBEE
(the Comprehensive Assessment System for Building Environmental Efficiency), and we're coming up with our own global checklist so that all our projects are being built to a certain standard of environmental quality.
For instance: BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) in Great Britain; LEED (Leader Energy Environment Design) in the USA; HQE (High Environmental Quality) in France; MINERGIE in Switzerland; PASSIVHAUS in Germany; HB BEAM in Hong Kong; CASBEE
(Comprehensive Assessment System for Building Environmental Efficiency) in Japan and TOTAL QUALITY in Austria.
