Methods/Statistical Analysis: The study examined the elements used in different assessment tools for 14 countries, and found out the most used elements which almost all the assessment tools used them based on critical analysis. Findings: From the assessment tools five (5) most used elements were identified which are very important to sustainable design. Application/Improvement: In conclusion sustainable design will not be effective if any of the five (5) elements is eliminated, because it shows that for design to be effectively sustainable the 5 elements need to be included.
