Green building assessment methods, which play an essential role in promoting the development of greenbuildings, have attracted much attention in recent years. Many studies have been conducted on the development of new assessment methods and improvement of existing ones through comparative analysis. However, there is no comprehensive study that explicitly explores these efforts.

Buildings consume nearly 40% of primary energy production globally. Certified green buildings substantially reduce energy consumption on a per square foot basis and they also focus on indoor environmental quality. However, the co-benefits to health through reductions in energy and concomitant reductions in air pollution have not been examined.

Purpose
The purpose of this paper is to examine the extent to which a systematic review approach is transferable from medicine to multi-disciplinary studies in the built environment research.
Design/methodology/approach
Primarily a review paper, it focuses on specific steps in the systematic review to clarify and elaborate the elements for adapting an evidence base in the built environment studies particular to the impact of green building on employees’ health, well-being and productivity.

The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) releases this Green Star for New Buildings consultation paper.
Since it first launched to market in 2003, Green Star has been a transformational force for the sustainable built environment. More than 2,250 projects across Australia have now been certified. But we cannot become complacent. We must continue to lift the bar and raise minimum standards. GBCA is calling on industry to provide feedback on the latest proposed changes to Green Star. The first rating tool under the microscope is Green Star for New Buildings.
