Wide acceptance of the concept of sustainable development has led to a demand for policies on sustainable housing. The issues of how sustainable housing can be measured or evaluated and how decision-making regarding sustainable housing can be facilitated are areas that require further research. This paper aims to introduce a conceptual approach in developing a decision-support tool for sustainable housing. An empirical decision-support model for sustainable housing indicators using fuzzy-set theory (SHIFT) is described, with particular focus on framing decision-making for multiple criteria or objectives.
