UN Sustainable Development Goals and the BREEAM Family of Standards and Tools

Tags: SDGs | construction | BREEAM | building

In January 2016, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were adopted by world leaders in September 2015, came into force. The construction and property sector will have an essential role in delivering the SDGs and their associated targets, given the significant economic, environmental and social impacts and benefits associated with construction products, buildings and infrastructure throughout their lifecycles.

BRE is delighted to support the SDGs and will continue to evolve the BREEAM family of standards and tools to enable significant contributions towards meeting the SDGs. BREEAM has produced an infographic that demonstrates how and where the BREEAM family of standards and tools support each of the 17 SDGs.
