Objectives for an optimal performing building

The goal is to establish a healthy and comfortable indoor climate, while reducing energy usage and environmental impact. Setting the objectives to reach this goal is the first step. Insight in your current performance is the next vital step. But how do you monitor your building performance to compare these to your objectives?
