The Implementation of Green Building Certification

In an effort to redice greenhouse gas emmissions, the Minister of Public Works and Public Housing issued Ministerial Regulation No. 02/PRT/M/2015 Year 2015
concerning Green Building and Circular Letter No. 86/ SE/DC/2016 concerning Technical Guidelines for the Implementation of Green Building (“Green Building Regulations”) as a guide to the implementation of green building.

Green Building Regulations classify building into two categories, namely Green Building and Community Green Housing (H2M). A Green Building is a building that meets building requirements and has significant measurable impact in saving energy, water, and other resources through the implementation of green building principles in accordance with the functions and classifications in every step of its implementation. Buildings which comply with green building requirements include both the new established buildingandbuildingthathasbeenutilized,inwhich implementationcanbe:(i)mandatory,(ii)recommended, or (iii) voluntary in accordance with the qualification of the relevant building.

Organizers of green building are defined to include the central government, regency/city government, provincial government in the case for DKI Jakarta area, owners, users, and/or building managers, construction service providers, and green building experts. The implementation of green building includes the stages of programming, technical planning, execution of construction, utilization, and demolition.

The regent/mayor will grant green building certificate and placard to the owner/manager of a building after obtaining a recommendation from the Green Building Expert Team. This certificate is valid for a period of 5 (five) years. The green building certificate and placard is recognition for the organizers of their compliance with green building principles and can be recognition for various tasks including technical planning, construction, utilization and demolition of the building. For DKI Jakarta area, the green building certificate is issued by the governor.

The green building certificate may be issued for various aspects of the construction of the building. These stages include:
(i) at the technical planning stage, where the certificate is awarded together with the issuance of a Building Construction Permit (IMB),
(ii) at the construction stage, where the certificate is issued together with the issuance of the Certificate of Building Proper Function (SLF),
(iii) at the utilization stage, where the certificate is awarded with the issuance of the extension of SLF, and finally;
(iv) at the demolition stage, where the certificate is given together with approval of the demolition technical plan.

Green building certificates are awarded based on the performance of the green building and subject to the following categories:
1. primary green building;
2. secondarygreenbuilding;and
3. smallgreenbuilding.

Regency/city government or provincial government of DKI Jakarta (specifically for DKI Jakarta area), provide incentives to owner and/or manager of green building, in the form of:
1. a facility on licensing levies and services;
2. compensation in the form of licensing facility and/or additional building floor coefficients;
3. technical and/or expertise support including, inter alia, technical advice and/or green building expert support for the pilot project;
4. award in the form of certificate, placard, and/or certificate of appreciation; and/or
5. other incentives in the form of publication and/or promotion.

It is hoped that the certification program will persuade owners, managers, developers and all other stakeholders to implement and consider more environmentally friendly practices in the future. SCN
