Abstract/Summary

As industrialization occurs, more problems concerning the environment arise. Thus, international rating systems such as the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and systems such as the Building Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence (BERDE) and the Quezon City Green Building (QCGB) ordinance in the Philippines were set as guidelines to be followed for green building construction. A survey was conducted to allow the better understanding of the compliance of LEED, BERDE, and QC. This paper presents the land use & ecology, water, energy, indoor environment quality, materials, and innovation performance assessment results of the new construction accredited buildings in the Philippines. Using analytical hierarchy process, the study revealed that LEED sets higher standards compared to BERDE and QCGB as land use & ecology, energy, and indoor environment quality were considered to be of equal importance. Consequently, the main barrier that hinders LEED buildings on the certification process is the stringent regulations set by LEED. On the other hand, the main barrier for BERDE buildings was lack of resources.
