Certification systems for buildings aim to make sustainability transparent for the general public and economically feasible for investors. Several hundred systems have been developed since around 1990. This book presents the most important in detail, such as BREEAM, LEED, DGNB and MINERGIES, compares their structures and approaches, provides information on the process and costs of an assessment as well as the requirements involved in compiling the necessary building documentation. Examples of certified buildings illustrate the various certification processes. Separate chapters provide an insight into the economic aspects and market potentials of sustainability labels and take a look at the possible future of green building certification systems. This book is a practice-related guide for clients and project managers, architects and planners, as well as construction companies and manufacturers of building products to manage and cope with the increasing complexity of sustainability certificates.
