The literature examining BREEAM was explored to extract an overview of the effectiveness of the method in assessing sustainability in built developments. It was found that BREEAM is a respected assessment tool, with much potential to develop into a valuable driver towards sustainable development in the construction industry. Shortfalls were discovered in the way the method has been used, e.g. in the industry understanding of sustainable development as a holistic concept; in the focus on short-term financial rewards; in the lack of site-specific consideration of the application of solutions.
