Sustainability and Building Design Comparison

I have been trying to understand what sustainable design means and it was recommended that I look at the different metrics that people have developed.

I thought it would be useful to understand criteria which are common in the UK like BREEAM and the new RIBA Sustainable Objectives. I had also been reading about the Living Building Challenge and wanted to see how they compare. Lastly, I thought it would be good to see how this fit into the wider context of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

I have tried to match them up as closely as possible; often one method would group aspects differently to another so I tried to show how they overlap.
