Estidama is a building design methodology for constructing and operating buildings and communities more sustainably. The program is a key aspect of the "Plan Abu Dhabi 2030" drive to build the city of Abu Dhabi according to innovative green standards. "Eastidama" is the Arabic word for sustainability.[1] The program is not itself a green building rating system like LEED or BREEAM, but rather a collection of ideals that are imposed in an elective building code type of format.

Within Estidama, however is a green building rating system called the Pearl Rating System[2] that is utilized to evaluate sustainable building design in Abu Dhabi. Both Estidama and the Pearl Rating system are currently under development in the pilot stage.
