Today, many systems that evaluate buildings according to their environmental impact have been developed and are being continuously developed. These systems are important tools for green transformation processes and an important first step.
There are many green building certification systems in the world. The main ones among them are LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) which emerged in the United States in 1998, BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) which emerged in the United Kingdom in 1990, IISBE (International Initiative for Sustainable Built Environment) which was established jointly by developed countries in 1998, Greenstar which was established in Australia by being adapted from BREEAM in 2003, CASBEE (Comprehensive Assessment for Building Environmental Efficiency) which was emerged in Japan in 2004, and DNGB (Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Nachhaltiges Bauen) which was emerged in Germany in 2009.
The Green Buildings Association and the Building Code and Certification Committee, which follow national and international developments in this field, have started to work on creating an Assessment System in line with national conditions with the participation of experts in the field to fill an important gap in our country.
