UAE To Introduce Green Building Rating System

A much-anticipated green building rating system will be introduced as a pilot in the UAE later this year, according to a Dubai Municipality official.

The system will be modelled on the US Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating, which provides a benchmark to measure the environmental sustainability of building's design, construction and operation.

It will be adapted to suit the UAE's climatic conditions and real estate market by the Emirates Green Building Council, a non-profit organisation which promotes environmental sustainability in the UAE's built environment.

After a 6-12 month trial run, the system is expected to be formally introduced in the UAE and coupled in Dubai with tougher municipality regulations on factors such as energy and water consumption, building insulation and energy tariffs, said Kamal Azayem, senior engineer at the Building Department, Dubai Municipality.
