The BREEAM In-use standards provide a framework to enable property investors, owners, managers and occupiers to determine and drive sustainable improvements in the operational performance of their assets, leading to benchmarking, assurance and validation of operational asset data.

The standards can be used to assess and benchmark the operational sustainability of all operational asset types. Each standard uses a common framework that is adaptable to the , allowing for international consistency and comparability.

The sustainability framework is underpinned by credible science, allowing the assessment process to identify valuable insights on the asset’s performance. The internationally recognised and third-party certification provides assurance and validation of the data collated throughout the assessment.
