Abstract: Worldwide, all the current sustainable rating and certification systems are targeting fair and applicable rating criteria and conditions to best matching the circumstances and sustainable needs of every nation for their environmental conditions, equity needs, and economic concerns.This paper is made to evaluate and measure the compliance of LEED-v4.1-(BD+C: NC) sustainable rating and certification system [1] with the sustainability concerns of the new construction (NC) market outside the USA through considering Egypt as an example and conducting a detailed comparative analysis between the LEED-v4.1-(BD+C: NC) sustainable rating and certification system [1] and the authors proposed sustainable rating and certification system for new construction in Egypt (Bonna (2018) [2]), to highlight most of the missing sustainability rating credits issues which are necessary for Egypt and not found within the LEED-v4.1-(BD+C: NC) rating system [1].Zuo and Zhao [3] emphasized that the green buildings in different countries are designed and built according to local climatic conditions and to suit the requirements of the locals and therefore, the assessment criteria for these green buildings are different.
