Abstract: At present, environmental issues are at the top of the agenda all over the world. Many of the environmental concerns are caused by buildings in the aspects including energy, water, natural environment and living environment. To pursue the development of the economy without compromising the quality of the environment for the future generation, many green building rating systems have been implemented on a global and national level. This study aims to: research the performance of the Building and Construction Authority‘s (BCA) Green Mark Scheme for assessing the environmental performance of buildings in Singapore; find out how the Scheme mitigates negative impacts generated by buildings; discover the shortcomings and ineffective aspects of the Scheme; and propose appropriate recommendations. Through the research, it can be observed that the BCA Green Mark Scheme has performed well under the BCA and attained significant achievements in promoting sustainability in buildings. However, there are some measures that can be implemented to improve the Scheme, for instance, including criteria related to building security, waste management. Additionally, the government should focus on raising awareness of environmental protection among the members of the public through the implementation of relevant policies.
