The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) is proud to have collaborated with the Federal Department of Environment and Energy and NABERS to develop the National Carbon Offset Standard for Buildings and the National Carbon Offset Standard for Precincts.
The Certification provides industry a recognised, streamlined and agreed way to claim to be a carbon neutral building or precinct in operation.
Buildings in operation can gain this certification through either the NABERS program or GBCA Green Star - Performance.
Carbon neutral certification does not require another layer of paperwork. Building owners can use the robust independent assessment processes of Green Star – Performance or NABERS Energy ratings to gain certification.
