For existing building and infrastructure projects, to evaluate the sustainability impact of their operations.
No matter how sustainably your project is built, its long-term environmental footprint largely depends on how it’s operated in post-occupancy phase. Maintaining green features across the life of a project for continued energy efficiency is the key to the success of a sustainable project over its lifetime. Even for the existing buildings that were not designed and built sustainably, it’s never too late to start green. GSAS Operations certification aims to reduce the environmental impact of the existing buildings by adopting best available practices.
GSAS Operations focuses on the impact of buildings once occupied, as their operational and maintenance practices have a direct impact on the natural environment, the economy and people’s health. Exclusively designed for existing buildings, irrespective of how they were designed and built, this certification aims to lessen a building’s environmental footprint while also improving the wellbeing of its occupants.
