BREEAM (Building Research Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method) was one of the first international schemes for green buildings to be launched, back in 1990. It was created by BRE, a profit-for-purpose organisation based in the UK. Today, BREEAM is available in more than 80 countries, with 9 local adaptations for specific countries.

Our contribution per category
Health & wellbeing
To increase the quality of life of the occupants of the building, through criteria related to health, comfort and safety
At ISOVER, we create efficient thermal and acoustic insulation solutions while improving the indoor air quality.
To promote energy-efficient buildings: reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions during the operational stage of the building's lifecycle
Thanks to ISOVER insulation, you can save up to 80% of a building's energy consumption for heating or cooling. Our range of solutions directed at energy efficiency is wide, to allow you to significantly reduce your energy need.
To ensure the materials used in the building have reduced footprint over their lifecycle
Evaluating the footprint of our solutions throughout their entire lifecycle is an approach that we have applied for several years, making the results available in our Environmental Product Declaration (EPDs). Internal innovation programs are in place to reduce the footprint of our solutions and improve their circularity.
To reduce the landfilled waste from the building at construction, operation and demolition stages
The recycling service we provide to our customers contributes to divert construction waste from landfill.
To recognize exemplary performance and innovation
We continuously innovate through research and development to increase the sustainability of our insulation systems and solutions.
