If you’re a regular Inhabitat reader, you’re probably already familiar with LEED, BREEAM, Passivhaus and even LBC, but there’s another green building certification program that you should know about – particularly if you’re interested in sustainable architecture in Asia. The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) of Singapore launched the Green Mark certification system in 2005 as a way to incentivize energy efficiency and cut dependence on foreign resources, but the program has since traveled outside of national borders and has been adopted by other Asian countries as an established standard for sustainable building. We recently met with the BCA’s CEO, Dr. John Keung, during the 2013 International Green Building Conference  to pick his brain about what distinguishes Green Mark from other green certification systems, what Singapore is doing to promote eco-conscious design and behaviors through education and how the program is making its “mark” on Asia. Read on to learn more about Green Mark and see Dr. Keung’s thoughts.
