CASBEE for Market Promotion

CASBEE is a tool for assessing and rating the environmental performance of buildings and built environment.

CASBEE for Market Promotion was developed with an intention to be widely used among property market participants, since conventional CASBEE rating schemes had been used mainly as tools for “Design for Environment”. Compared with other CASBEE rating schemes, CASBEE for Market Promotion is a shorter version covering common metrics examined by UNEP SBCI and considers alignment with other internationally recognized certification schemes, e.g., LEED.
