There is a strong need for more efficient and more sustainable buildings. However sustainable architectural design management is a problem. Especially the focus is on Multi Criteria Decision making within the design process and how to support this, so that the decisions about fulfilling sustainable aspects in the design are made transparent for all stake holders within the design process. The four most popular sustainable assessment tools in the Netherlands, Greencalc+, Ecological Footprint, LEED and BREEAM, were then applied to the set of 8 state-of-the-art buildings and the results compared. The key question to be answered is do current environmental assessment methods provide a good measure of sustainability? Therefore the conclusions of our research will be used to draw some conclusions.
