Abstract: Sustainable development in the construction industry demands implementation of a green rating procedure and certification to assess building. The rating tools set benchmarks for green measures for constructing and use of buildings to reduce their negative impacts on environment thereby making it more sustainable. In this paper, Rating systems and certifications across the globe are studied and compared to give a clear understanding of all for any green building project to be evaluated upon. There are 18 major certifications and 18 rating systems all over the world, however in India there are three rating systems which are mostly used viz. IGBC, GRIHA, LEED. It is recommended that a more simple system is needed for enhancing the participation of all stakeholders in Green building construction thereby leading to sustainable development.
