CASBEE (Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environment Efficiency/Building Environment Efficiency) is a method for assessing and rating the environmental performance of buildings and the built environment in Japan under the auspice of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT).
Certification for CASBEE for Real Estate is a system in which a third party examines and certifies assessment results prepared in accordance with CASBEE for Real Estate, one of the CASBEE certification systems. It was developed to promote the use of the results of building environmental assessments in CASBEE as an environmental assessment in the real estate market. The assessment criteria have been developed focusing on items that are strongly related to real estate evaluation so that people engaged in real estate development and transactions can utilize CASBEE. The assessment items are made up of 21 items in five categories of “Energy/Greenhouse Gas,” “Water,” “Resource Utilization/Safety,” “Biodiversity/Site” and “Indoor Environment.” CASBEE takes into account the same environmental performance items that are attracting attention from companies in Japan and abroad as common international items proposed by the UNEP SBCI (United Nations Environment Programme Sustainable Buildings and Climate Change Initiative).
