Analysis of the Scope and Trends of Worldwide Green Building Assessment Standards

Jack C. P. Cheng and Vignesh Venkataraman

Abstract—The number of green buildings has steadily increased in recent years, during which various green building assessment standards have evolved to complement the development of green buildings. This study identifies the gaps in scope among different green building assessment standards and discusses the future trends of green buildings for better design and certification planning. This study focuses on the LEED standard in US, BREEAM in UK, BEAM in Hong Kong, Green Mark in Singapore, and Green Star in Australia. After a brief overview on the selected standards, this research analyzes the shift in scope of the different standards since their establishment, and compares the differences and trends among them.

Index Terms—BREEAM, gap analysis, green building, green mark, green star, HK-beam, LEED.
