BREEAM In-Use Online

1 Glossary of terms

Account credit Used by Clients to make payment for registering pre-assessments on the

BREEAM In-Use online system and by Auditors to certify pre-assessments. Please refer to the BREEAM In-Use fee sheet for current charges.

Asset – An asset defines the boundaries for which a pre-assessment can be carried out, these boundaries being decided by the Client. For example:

An entire building

A floor of a building

The leased area of a building

The common areas of a building

Room of a building

Wing of a building

Separately managed tenanted areas

Note: An asset cannot include more than one building.

Asset log The action of logging basic asset details to the online system, creating a record against which pre-assessments can be registered. Completed by a Client user classified as either a Portfolio Manager or Portfolio Owner. Unless purposefully deleted, logged portfolios and assets remain within the Client’s online system account indefinitely.

Asset Manager - Those identified by the Portfolio Manager as responsible for the preassessment of an asset. Portfolio Managers can also operate as Asset Managers. Typical business practice is for the Asset Manager to report to the Portfolio Manager.

Note: Auditors may act on behalf of the Clients when conducting pre-assessments.

Asset Manager – Those identified by the Portfolio Manager as responsible for the preassessment of an asset. Portfolio Managers can also operate as Asset Managers. Typical business practice is for the Asset Manager to report to the Portfolio Manager.

Note: At present, Asset Managers are classified as ‘Assessors’ on the BREEAM In-Use online system.

Auditor - A BRE Global licensed practitioner qualified to assist Clients in the completion of their pre-assessment and/or to verify the pre-assessment within the terms of the Scheme in order to provide certification.

Audit – A independent assessment of a clients building or the organisation within it.

BREEAM In-Use A BREEAM certification scheme used for quantifying the environmental performance of buildings during operational stages against the BRE Environmental and

Sustainability Standard (BES) 5058 (the BREEAM In-Use Standard). The BREEAM In-Use

Standard has been produced to enable provision of information about the environmental performance of:

• the building (Asset Rating);

• the operation of the building (Building Management Rating);

PN506 Rev 0 BREEAM In-Use online system User Manual Page 3 of 73 © BRE Global Ltd 2010

BREEAM In-Use Online

How clients are managing their activities within the building (Organisational rating).

BREEAM In-Use online system – A web based software system used by:

Clients (and Auditors acting on behalf of Clients) to conduct BREEAM In-Use preassessments and KPI measurements, and;

Auditors to verify the accuracy of their Client’s pre-assessment.

BREEAM In-Use online system account – Once registered and purchased account credit, organisations can begin to use their private BREEAM In-Use online system account to register, pre-assess and submit their assets for BREEAM In-Use certification and verified KPI reports.

Certification - A certificate output confirming the performance of the clients building, produced by the online system against Parts 1, 2 or 3 of the BES 5058 Standard, released by licensed BREEAM In-Use Auditors on behalf of BRE Global.

Certification/Report Renewal - Auditors reissuing certificates or reports on the basis of either Client confirmation that there has been no significant changes to the asset, or full renewal of the pre-assessment.

Client - A person, business or organisation using the BREEAM In-Use online system to preassess the assets they represent.

Credit - Awarded for meeting a specific environmental performance target within the

BREEAM In-Use questionnaire.

International Sustainability Alliance (ISA) – ISA, in partnership with the BRE Trust, is bringing together a global network of leading real estate organisations dedicated to achieving a more sustainable built environment by creating a benchmarking club to measure the performance and environmental impact of existing commercial buildings. ISA Members use the same online platform as BREEAM In-Use Clients. For more information see www.internationalsustainabilityalliance.org

.

KPI report – A set of 10 Key Performance Indicators formed by the International

Sustainability Alliance and used by organisations assessing the performance of their realestate in the BREEAM In-Use online system. Key environmental performance data spanning

Transport, Energy, Water and Waste is entered into the BREEAM In-Use online system to generate KPI Reports. This does not constitute certification against any part of the BREEAM

In-Use Standard.

Asset measurement registration – Registering new measurements against the asset log to provide access to the KPI dashboard, for a period of up to twelve months, or until a verified

KPI report is issued by a licensed Auditor, whichever is sooner. To upgrade the measurement to a ‘pre-assessment’, clients must first undertake an online exam designed to test for a basis understanding of BREEAM In-Use. By entering their Exam Pass ID to their online system account details, Client users are then able to unlock the BREEAM In-Use section of the online system within all asset measurements they have access to, providing access to the online questionnaire and unlimited pre-assessment scoring using the dynamic BREEAM In-Use dashboard. It is important to note the difference between a measurement (as having access to KPIs only) and a pre-assessment (with access to both KPIs and BREEAM In-Use) due to the degree of interpretation and qualitative decision making required for BREEAM In-Use.

PN506 Rev 0 BREEAM In-Use online system User Manual Page 4 of 73 © BRE Global Ltd 2010

BREEAM In-Use Online

Point - The weighted value of a credit expressed as a percentage point.

Portfolio - A collection of assets owned or rented by an individual, group or company, represented by the Client.

Portfolio log - The action of logging basic portfolio details to the online system, creating a record within which assets can be logged.

Portfolio Manager - Person or persons responsible for control of the BREEAM In-Use online system pre-assessment as applied to designated portfolios of the Client's real estate. Portfolio

Managers:

Log portfolios and assets for the Client organisation.

Perform BREEAM In-Use pre-assessments and KPI measurements.

Submit pre-assessments and measurements to Auditors for verification and certification.

Typical business practice is for the Portfolio Manager(s) to report to the Portfolio

Owner.

Portfolio Owner - Typically a Chief CSR or Sustainability Officer for the Client organisation,

Portfolio Owners have unlimited privileges within the BREEAM In-Use online system, which in addition to those held by Portfolio Managers (see above), will include creating a online system account for their organisation, purchasing credit and allocating Portfolio Managers and Asset

Managers. Portfolio Owners are the Client’s main point of contact for BRE Global

Note: There can only be one Portfolio Owner within an organisation.

Pre-assessment - The process of producing dynamic scores against any, or all of the three sections of the BREEAM In-Use standard, generated by answering a series of questions falling under to the BREEAM In-Use Standard. Pre-assessments are produced by either any qualified Client (designated as such after passing a basic exam) or licensed Auditors for use in internal sustainability reporting and ongoing performance management. From start to finish the online pre-assessment process should typically take no longer than 4 hours for each asset.

Quality Assurance Audit – An audit conducted by BRE Global to ensure auditors follow the quality procedures outlined in the BREEAM In-Use Standard and maintain an acceptable level of professional and technical competence.

Rating - An overall classification resulting from pre-assessment questionnaire answers. The rating expresses the performance of an asset against the BREEAM In-Use criteria and ranges from Unclassified, Acceptable, Pass, Good, Very Good, Excellent and Outstanding, depending on the number of points scored. The same ratings can also be expressed from one star to six stars, acceptable being one star and Outstanding, six.

User Hierarchy – The BREEAM In-Use online system unlocks user privileges according to that user’s position in a user hierarchy set out below:

1. Portfolio Owners (register their organisation with BREEAM In-Use) – the ‘super user’,

Portfolio Owners have unlimited privileges

2. Portfolio Managers (activated by Portfolio Owners) – mostly unlimited privileges,

Portfolio Managers cannot activate other Portfolio Managers

PN506 Rev 0 BREEAM In-Use online system User Manual Page 5 of 73 © BRE Global Ltd 2010

BREEAM In-Use Online

3. Asset Managers (activated by Portfolio Owners or Portfolio Managers) – privileges mostly limited to pre-assessment work

Verification - The process of ensuring that there is evidence to show that the client’s buildings achieve the performance claimed conducted by a licensed auditor.

Verified KPI Reports - A report output produced by the online system, depicting the asset’s performance against set of 10 Key Performance Indicators in areas of transport, energy, water and waste, corroborated by evidence reviewed by a licensed BREEAM In-Use Auditor.

Weighting - A percentage factor used to control the contribution of credits towards the asset’s final BREEAM In-Use rating. Raw credit scores are multiplied by the category weighting factor assigned, resulting in an overall points score used to determine the asset’s final rating.

3 Introduction to BREEAM In-Use online

This User Manual provides guidance to Portfolio Owners, Portfolio Managers and Asset

Managers using the BREEAM In-Use online system.

A further supplement will be released for licensed auditors once the BREEAM In-Use online system is launched users outside of the International Sustainability Alliance (ISA).

Historically, all BREEAM assessments were completed using a paper based system supported by a spreadsheet tool.

The BREEAM In-Use online system is a web based software tool which can be accessed from any internet enabled computer. It has been designed to substantially reduce the time taken for issuing BREEAM In-Use certificates.

The system will enable client organisations to manage their real estate, inputting portfolio and asset details alongside associated environmental performance data to measure performance against a Key Performance Indicator set or more detailed BREEAM In-Use pre-assessment.

The same system is used by Auditors to verify the performance of the clients assets, preassessments submitted to them by Clients wishing to verify KPI measurements or certify

BREEAM In-Use pre-assessments and to produce reports and recommendations.

Note: BREEAM In-Use criteria are currently based on UK building regulations codes of practice, climatic conditions and energy methodology. Assets pre-assessed outside of

the UK achieve ‘indicative’ ratings.

After the measurement or pre-assessment has been certified, electronic copies of BREEAM

In-Use certificates and verified KPI Reports can be downloaded by the client from their online system account.

3.1 Who can use the system

3.1.1 Clients

Portfolio Owners can register their organisation for a BREEAM In-Use online system account via the Register button, located on the BREEAM In-Use online system home page, at www.assetinuse.org.uk.

An invoice for the cost of purchasing the BREEAM In-Use account credit necessary to register measurements for the Client’s total number of assets is generated, and payment obtained using a secure online credit card process.

Payment equivalent to registering measurements for every Client asset does not have to be made at this stage (account credit maybe ‘topped-up’ at any point after initial account creation) although a minimum of one asset measurement registration must be purchased).

Subject to payment of these fees, Portfolio Manager’s identified by the Portfolio Owner can log assets within virtual property portfolios and then use credit to register asset measurements enabling KPI measurement and BREEAM In-Use pre-assessment.

The online system can then by used by Client users including Portfolio Owners, Portfolio

Managers or Asset Managers to measure the performance of their assets against KPIs or to pre-assess against BREEAM In-Use.
