This article deals with an output of the SuPerBuildings project. It is about the needs of development of performance levels and benchmarking criteria and weighting methods. The project aims at collecting information and analysing the situation with regard to availability and common understanding of performance levels for benchmarking and aggregation and weighting methods. It should help tool developers to determine reference values for the calibration of performance scales.

Description

The collecting of information and analysis of the situation is in order to come to conclusions about the needs for (further) development and/or harmonization of sustainability indicators and assessment methods. The analysis is based on the study of eleven national building evaluation tools, i.e. BREEM, BNB/DGNB, PromisE, HQE, Valideo, CASBEE, LEED, SBTool CZ, Klima:aktiv Gebäudestandard, TQB and GPR Gebouw. All these tools have performance rating scale at the building and also at indicator level.


General structure - aggregation levels

All systems have several levels of aggregation. All of them have reference performance level – at building level – expressed as:

  • A grade (A-B-C-D-E) or a number of stars
  • A global mark (expressed in points) that is the sum of points for each indicator or each preoccupation
  • A ratio
  • An environmental profile

All systems are based on a four-level aggregation scheme:

  • Global score (points, grade, stars, word, letter …)
  • Themes
  • Indicators
  • Sub-indicators

Target group/users
