Recertification: We’re here to help

The Sustainability Services team is in the process of putting together your go to toolkit for recertification. We are busy working on:

  • Recertification Guideline – an FAQ style document which will answer all of your questions on how recertification works; and
  • Clarity on what is required at recertification – As part of this year’s minor updates for Green Star – Performance and Green Star – Communities, the following will form part of the update:


    • All credits will include the details for recertification – separate ‘Recertification’ sections for Compliance Requirements and Documentation Requirements; and
    • Recertification Submission Templates – which reflect the specific ‘Recertification’ sections for Compliance Requirements and Documentation Requirements.

Minor Release Dates:

Green Star – Performance v1.1 – March 2016

Green Star – Communities v1.1 – August 2016
