Abstract [en]

To certify buildings has become a part in the ambition to strive for sustainable development inthe construction industry. Today, a number of certification programmes exist, with variousextents and focus areas.The purpose of this report is to provide an understanding of the three most commoncertification programmes used in Sweden.A comparison regarding the certifications programmes requirements and categories ofevaluation has been made. For this attempt 9 main categories of evaluation were created. Thecomparison treated office buildings and unfurnished commercial buildings. One part of thecomparison consists of an attempt to determine whether it is easier to gain high ratings in acertain programme.The choice of certification programmes and the choice of building types to analyse are basedon answers obtained through questionnaires. The questionnaires were answered byrepresentatives of the three largest construction companies in Sweden.The certification programmes treated in this report is two programmes that are usedworldwide (BREEAM and LEED), and one programme that is only used in Sweden(Miljöbyggnad). The extents of the two international systems are equal, while the Swedishsystem is not as extensive. BREEAM and LEED take into consideration both building andsurrounding area, in a long-term perspective. Unlike BREEAM and LEED, Miljöbyggnadfocuses solely on the building itself. All three systems have in common that they to a largepart focuses on indoor environment and the well being of humans.The comparison shows that Miljöbyggnad is the certification programme in which it is easiestto gain a high level of certification. One major reason to this is that Miljöbyggnad has a lowerextent than the other programmes.
