Green & Gracious Builders’ Scheme (GGBS)
“Given high visibility and impact of construction works in Singapore, it is important for builders to go green and adopt ‘friendlier’ construction practices…Take simple steps to be the change agent contributing to the environment and the community-at-large,”
– Dr John Keung, CEO of BCA
First launched in February 2009, BCA’s Green and Gracious Builder Scheme (GGBS) and Green and Gracious Builder Award aims to raise the environmental consciousness and professionalism of builders. The award acts as a benchmark of a builder’s corporate social responsibility to the environment and the general public, and sets standards for green and gracious practices that builders can implement to address environmental concerns and mitigate possible inconveniences to the public caused by construction works.
The latest GGBS version 2.1 was launched on 20 October 2016. New applications received after 19 April 2017 will be subjected to GGBS version 2.1 assessment. For existing certified firms, GGBS version 2.1 will be applicable after 19 October 2017.
