The Built Environment Scorecard (BESS) is an assessment tool created by the Victorian Council Alliance for a Sustainable Built Environment (CASBE). The aim of the tool is to assist builders and developers to show how a proposed development demonstrates sustainable design at the planning stage.
There are 9 categories that are assessed within the BESS tool, which are:
Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ)
BESS can also be used by any member of the community to assess the design of their home and find ways to make it more sustainable.
