BESS Certificate

Accelerate’s BESS assessors can help you achieve BESS certification


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:

  • Management
  • Water
  • Energy
  • Stormwater
  • Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ)
  • Transport
  • Waste
  • Urban Ecology
  • Innovation

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.
