As the world continues to urbanize, integrated policies to improve the lives of both urban and rural dwellers are needed. It could be claimed that the best way to address such problems in major cities is through sustainable urban regeneration where economical, ecological and social impacts of urbanization are examined and practiced thoroughly. In the literature review, the number of publications and identified key performance indicators are found as insufficient. Also, the key performance indicators identified in publications are insufficient for projectspecific performance measurement. Most of them do not include validation and verification of the models. In this study, specific focus is on the environmental performance dimension of sustainable project performance. Thus, this study aims to provide a source for these problems and to systematically measure the environmental performance of urban regeneration projects. It also provides the formulation of the environmental performance measurement model and defines key performance indicators. The data obtained from the literature review and field studies. The proposed AHP model incorporates 9 performance criteria, and 55 related KPIs. After determining the hierarchical structure of KPIs, they are rated using a 7-point Likert scale questionnaire to identify their priority. Next, AHP process have been conducted by participation of 25 experts. Finally, the environmental performance measurement model for urban regeneration projects has been developed. Study results indicate that “Energy” criteria has the highest priority level for determining the environmental performance of urban transformation projects. Consecutively, “Water” criteria comes after followed by “Land Use” and “Ecology”.

Keywords: Environmental sustainability, Urban regeneration, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), Key Performance Indicator (KPI), Construction sector.
