All about Simply GREEN!
A quick guide to the international environmental classification schemes, written in an intelligible way. Target groups are real estate owners and all persons who want to know more about the building certification systems.
In total, the book describes thirteen certification systems of which four are only covered very briefly. The authors believe that this book will be used primarily for orientation purposes and as a basis for helping to decide which system to use.
This book Simply GREEN presents an overview of all main global and some national environmental and energy assessment systems. In words of Professor Emeritus Brian Edwards: “In this publication I am struck by the way a complex field is reduced to simple language and straightforward principles and facts. Too often building certification is mired by excessive technical description and construction jargon. In the spirit of knowledge sharing and technological exchange, Swegon Air Academy has served Europe’s construction industry well by funding this simple GREEN guide to environmental and energy certification.”
In addition, this book discusses six environmental and three purely energy-based certification systems along with fourth briefly discussed certification systems: the British BREEAM Assessment Method, the US LEED Rating System, the German DGNB Certification System, the Australian Green Star Rating System, the Swedish Miljöbyggnad system, the French HQE system, the European Green Building Programme, the Swiss Minergie Building Standard, the German Passive House (Passivhaus) Standard, the Japanese CASBEE assessment system, the Indian IGBC rating system, the US ENERGY STAR program, and the French Effinergie system
