The Malaysian Carbon Reduction and Environmental Sustainability Tool (MyCREST) is a tool that guides construction industry players and stakeholders to design, construct and operate buildings that integrate low carbon and sustainable practices. A building that subscribes to MyCREST will be given certification based on points achieved. MyCREST was developed by taking into account the whole building life cycle starting from pre-design up to demolition stage.
These criteria are then implemented according to three certification phases: DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION & MAINTENANCE. Depending on each phase, the criteria are adjusted for different requirements and relevance according to that particular phase.
