Sustainable construction movement has been deeply transforming the traditional construction sector. As an important part of the sustainable construction delivery system, sustainable/green building rating tools play an essential role in implementing the sustainable principles into the construction industry. This paper makes detailed description and comparison among the six mainstream green building assessment tools, including LEED, BREEAM, SBTool, CASBEE, BCA-GM, and ESGB. A short discussion about these sustainable/green building assessment tools has been made, and also briefly points out the importance and urgency of the sustainable construction development based on Chinese context.
