Abstract

In recent years, the green building environmental assessment tools (BEATs) are increasingly being adopted from one country to the other. Previous authors have proposed several ways for improving the performance of BEATs precisely, the second generation tools adopted from elsewhere. However, a few studies have focussed on how the tools are operated in their new contexts. Therefore for further advancement of this emerging field in the property and building sector, the current work compares the operation criteria of the original and adoptive tools in order to analyse the implications associated with the adoptive tools hence suggest ways for improvement. Focusing on the Green Star tool as a case study, a few implications have been highlighted relative to facilitation, accreditation and implementation criteria of the tools. Although there is no clear-cut for promoting BEATs based on how are structured, continuous improvement of the BEATs in specific contexts is needed.
