Abstract

The environmental rating system tools presently available to the design community are limited in numbers. Before green buildings can become mainstream more systems need to emerge, however equivalency between these rating systems must be determined. Thus this paper will attempt to compare the environmental attributes of the two most popular environmental rating systems in use today in North America. The comparison will be performed by means of seven dual certified buildings and use the official submission sheets from each system to determine their relative robustness to various individual environmental criteria as well as to the overall rating systems performance.
