BEAM Plus assessment is Hong Kong’s leading initiative to offer independent assessments of building sustainability performance.

BEAM Plus provides building users with a single performance label that demonstrates the overall quality of the building, regardless of whether it is new, refurbished or in use. By holding developers to the highest standards, BEAM Plus certification is a proven path for creating safer, healthier, more comfortable, more functional and more energy-efficient buildings.

Since its launch in 2010,

BEAM Plus Neighbourhood

BEAM Plus Neighbourhood adopts a more holistic approach to assessing  sustainability performance at the early or inception stage of a development project.  It helps lay down a broader framework of urban sustainability for a smoother implementation of the principles in the subsequent development stages. The assessment concerns the design of space between buildings and places an emphasis on socio-economic elements of a development.
