The reasons such as global warming and climate change, decrease in water resources, environmental pollution and rapid consumption of natural resources make it necessary to build green buildings in the building sector.

Within the scope of sustainable development, since 1990, various green building certifications have been created to support the construction of buildings that consume less energy, use less natural resources and pollute the environment in many countries, especially in developed countries.

In this context, the protocol for the development of a “National Evaluation Guide” between the Ministry and Istanbul Technical University (ITU) on February 26, 2016 in order to evaluate and certify buildings and settlements that comply with climate data and the region, consume as much energy and water as they need, and use renewable energy sources. He was signed.

Then the structure of evaluating the framework until the life cycle of destruction from land selection, in harmony with nature, sustainable and unique to Turkey in 2018. In order to extend the building of applications using the geographical features of the location of "building" and "settlement" in the framework of the main categories "Certificate System Guide" was prepared .

The organization will establish a transaction based on the Green Certificate Rating score.

Since all these transactions will be carried out through YeS-TR, both the inventory of buildings with green building features will be kept by the Ministry and the transactions and records made from the system can be examined when there is any complaint.
