Several international and national instruments for the assessment of the sustainable building performance have been developed in the last years, such as BREEAM (Great Britain), LEED (USA) and DGNB (Germany) and methodologies, like the SBTool (international) or LEnSE (Europe). These tools and methodologies have the same intent: advancement of the sustainable building performance, but they are based on different criteria and assessment baselines. To show the differences and gaps of existing assessment methods and to develop minimum standards for sustainable buildings in Europe the EU Commission started the project OPEN HOUSE. The abstract will give an overview about OPEN HOUSE - a methodology for setting standards for assessing the ecological, economical and social performance of buildings in Europe.
