Green Building comparison

Green Building Rating Systems
A comparison of

LEED 2009 and


January 2014


In 2011, the Standards Institution of Israel launched a major revision of the Israeli Standard for Green Building, SI5281. The standard was modeled on leading existing rating systems, such as LEED and BREEAM, while being shaped by local environmental, regulatory and market conditions. While the Israeli standard has become increasingly established, it is not uncommon for buildings in Israel to seek certification from other international rating systems. The aim of this comparison is to assess the similarities and differences between SI5281 and other major rating systems. With the overall goal of encouraging and facilitating the uptake of sustainable construction methods, it is hoped that the comparison will inform choices between the different methods and will ultimately encourage dialogue towards mutual recognition between green building rating systems.
