BREEAM assesses buildings in the following domains: energy, management, health and well-being, transport, water, materials used, waste, land use, ecology and pollution.

CHINESE GREEN BUILDING LABEL 3 STARS

The China Building Science Research Institute developed a two-stage green building rating system, the Chinese Green Building Label-3 or, more commonly, 3-Star Rating in 2006. The rating system is managed by The Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MOHURD) and building certified by the China Green Label Office at the China Green Technology Centre. In the first stage, the building may earn a Green Design Building Label, allowing the project to be marketed as a green building to potential tenants or the community. In the second phase, the building may earn a Green Building Operation Label.
