Abstract [en]

The sustainability of the built environment is increasingly becoming an urgent issue for modern society. In this context, assessing the sustainable development of buildings will be an effective tool in managing and monitoring the progress of the sustainability performance on a local and/or global scale. In this paper, there is an attempt to integrate two methods of assessing the sustainability of buildings. The first method applies the concept of composite indicators. The other method applies the weighted utility function, using the value-focused thinking approach of mathematically modelling and constructing composite indicators. A tentative index to evaluate the sustainability of buildings is proposed, based on this integrated approach. The suggested method can give the assessor the opportunity to analyse the potential improvement that can be carried out in order to improve the sustainable development of buildings in the long and short term. Finally, the role of benchmarking in improving the sustainability performance of buildings is discussed in relation to the suggested method.
