BEAM Plus is Hong Kong's leading initiative to offer independent assessment of building sustainability performance. Its major aims are to enhance the health and wellbeing of building occupants, to reduce the environmental impacts of buildings (and to make positive contributions wherever feasible), as well as to make buildings more efficient and emit less carbon. Today, BEAM Plus has extended reach outside Hong Kong (see map above) and its tools will continue to evolve to dovetail with international trends and standards.

As one of HKGBC's green building tools, BEAM Plus offers a comprehensive set of performance criteria for a wide range of sustainability issues including energy use and carbon emissions, climate adaptation and resilience, land use and transport, site ecology, materials and waste, water use, health and wellbeing, pollution management, integrative design, smart technology and innovations, etc. By providing a fair and objective assessment of a building's overall performance, BEAM Plus enables organisations and companies of all sizes to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable development.
