This chapter presents a comparison of the key sustainability reporting and assessment rating tools around the globe which are most applicable to property development. It then assesses critically their contribution to the development of buildings in a sustainable manner. As rating tools, at least potentially, can have an influence on market pricing the discussion is not restricted to those tools which are implemented purely at the design and development stage. Taking an objective approach, this chapter asks the question: are we, as a society, collectively and as a development industry, in danger of hitting the targets but missing the point with regards to developing more sustainable buildings with these tools?
