Abstract: As the topic of building sustainability gained considerable global momentum, Singapore government has initiated the Green Mark (GM) Scheme to mitigate environmental impact and assessing the sustainability of buildings. This dissertation, however, hypothesises that the GM framework is insufficient in assuring certified buildings are truly sustainable over the span of time. This study evaluates and analyse the GM criteria with reference to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) that is adopted globally. A case study of a green warehouse achieving both Gold rating in LEED and Platinum rating in GM was closely examined in great details to understand the difference in assessment criteria for both green building rating system. Findings demonstrated that the GM current benchmark has room for improvements in terms of point allocation and assessed criteria, in particularly, Platinum rating is achievable without provision of renewable energy. The necessity of provision of renewable energy to wholly fulfil the concept of sustainability is then deliberated. The qualitative research methodology based on one case study and two interview response constituted to the limitation of this dissertation. Recommendations to improve the GM scheme are proposed to further align GM towards global standard and sustainability. The study concludes by providing suggestions for future research.
