Building level assessments schemes, such as BREEAM, have been around for over 25 years and have seen an exponential demand for such certification in the last decade. The construction industry consumes large quantities of resources, generates large amounts of waste, and is responsible for 50% of all carbon emissions. Therefore, the need for the industry to reduce its impact is essential if the UK wants to meet its commitment to reduce emissions by 100% by 2050. BREEAM enables the industry to demonstrate buildings' environmental credentials against a number of issues. This presentation will show how the stone industry can demonstrate its sustainability credentials through BREEAM.
