Technical Evaluation of Environmental Assessment Rating Tools

Technical Evaluation of Environmental Assessment Rating Tools

This study investigated the environmental impact assessment of building products, especially in relation to wood products, as incorporated in existing tools; identified a comprehensive set of environmental attributes; and recommended what information is required to accurately reflect the benefits of Australian wood based products in the tools which are being adopted in Australia. Twenty seven (27) building evaluation tools in use around the world and in Australia were reviewed with particular attention to building material inclusion.
