AIA Studies Three Green Building Rating Systems

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has released a study of three green building rating systems (Green Globes, SBTool 07, and LEED® NC 2.2) and assesses their effectiveness in supporting the goals of the AIA sustainability position statement.

The purpose of the survey and feedback information is to offer analysis to both industry and the public as an opportunity to learn how three unique, creative and evolving green building rating systems resonate in various dimensions with the goals of the AIA position statement on sustainability and its goal to achieve carbon neutrality in buildings by 2030.
