BREEAM In-Use Country Snapshots: France, Belgium & Sweden

BREEAM In-Use International is increasingly being adopted in countries around the world. The scheme is currently used in over 35 countries worldwide with assets certified throughout Europe and further afield.

Following the success of the BREEAM In-Use Fact File publication released earlier this year, we wanted to provide an insight into the countries which host the highest number of assets implementing the BREEAM In-Use scheme. We also wanted to give recognition to some of our major users who are using BREEAM In-Use to assess large numbers of assets, some using the tool to assess their entire property portfolio(s)

We have created three ‘Country Snapshot’ publications: France, Belgium & Sweden. These publications give an overview of the level of uptake, the type of users implementing BREEAM In-Use and include statistics specific to each country.

Within each ‘snapshot’ you can see the total assessed space (m2) certified under BREEAM In-Use, average environmental category scores and a breakdown of ratings. Are your assets performing above or below the BREEAM In-Use average in each of these countries?!

Alongside the statistics we have invited users to provide us with case studies to feature; a great opportunity to showcase their BREEAM In-Use achievements.

What’s next?
We would like to hear about what information or statistics you would like to see.  We collect data on all assessments that certify through the scheme from occupancy levels through to the age of each asset, so we have plenty to work with. Maybe the next set of publications could be focus pieces on different asset types – Office, Retail & Hotels? Let us know what you think and feel free to provide us with any feedback which can assist us in tailoring our snapshot messages.

Want to be involved in future publications?  We are eager to work with as many client and assessor organisations as possible to produce materials that can jointly promote the BREEAM In-Use International scheme and the assets using it. From Case studies, Client testimonials to simply supplying us with images to showcase on our website, please do get in touch if you would like to be involved:
