BRE is committed to the EU Taxonomy
As detailed below, BRE is committed to working with the EU Taxonomy. This document is the cornerstone of that commitment, and we will build on this. BREEAM will always remain impartial, being informed by rather than completely linked to any one methodology. Our development roadmap is naturally aligned with much of the EU Taxonomy criteria. From our customer and stakeholder engagement work, we are hearing requests for greater alignment with the EU Taxonomy. We are pleased to announce that BREEAM will be doing exactly this, increasing alignment with the EU Taxonomy. In addition, we are involved with its development and are committed to realising opportunities as the EU Taxonomy evolves.
BRE will update the mapping upon final confirmation from the European Commission of Annex III: Circularity (expected Summer 2022) and as the further three Annex publications are released. BREEAM is committed to working with the Taxonomy to facilitate our customer’s journey towards comprehensive disclosure requirement reporting. The charts show the substantial level of alignment between our products and the technical screening criteria as they exist today. As the full extent of technical screening criteria is released, our suite of BREEAM schemes will be reviewed to provide as much compatibility with the taxonomy as our science will allow.

BREEAM helps you demonstrate where your assets meet the EU Taxonomy screening criteria. Whilst this varies per scheme and the proportion s of this overall, your BREEAM assessment gives you a head start on your EU Taxonomy reporting.
We are committed to keep building on this, sharing our mapping as new Annexes are released and to increase our alignment in BREEAM while maintaining the impartiality of our assessment criteria, integrated and contributing to the EU Taxonomy as part of our commitment to our customers and to delivering a credible, holistically sustainable built environment.
