Estidama is used in the Middle East and was developed primarily for Abu Dhabi where it is also embedded within local legislation.
Estidama is divided into 7 categories and incorporates a Pearl Rating System. The Pearl rating system of Estidama is designed to provide the most cost-effective, high performing developments and creating a new sustainability framework.
The various categories and possible Pearl Rating Systems are:
Number of Points
IDP – Integrated Development Process
NS – Natural Systems
LB - Livable Buildings
PW – Precious Water
RE – Resourceful Energy
SM – Stewarding Materials
IP – Innovating Practice
Within each section there are both mandatory and optional credits and credit points are awarded for each optional credit achieved. To achieve a 1 Pearl rating, all the mandatory credit requirements must be met. To achieve a higher Pearl rating, all the mandatory credit requirements must be met along with a minimum number of credit points.
