Introduction

Thank you for your participation in this survey.

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is one of the world's leading sustainable building assessment systems, with over half a million certified developments around the world.

BREEAM is a holistic sustainable assessment process that evaluates the procurement, design, construction and operation of a development against targets that are based on a range of performance benchmarks including energy efficiency, management, water consumption, waste generation and pollution. Assessments are rated from Pass through to Outstanding, and are carried out by independent, licensed assessors and third party audited for a robust certification.

In 2010, recognising a growing need to assess the sustainability of data centres BRE Global released the Data Centres 2010 manual for the UK market. We are now looking to update the data centres manual for the global market and to re-align our benchmarks to reflect current industry best practice.

Your feedback is crucial to our work and will be used anonymously for the purposes of criteria development and benchmark setting.
