This paper provides a high level summary of the rating tool. It highlights key industry trends tackled by the proposed update, the five key features, descriptions of the categories and credits, as well as proposed changes to the Climate Positive Pathway and the certification process. It also provides guidance for anyone seeking to provide feedback on the draft credits.
We will be accepting feedback on Green Star Communities v2 from 15 June to 15 August.
Yes you may. Please ensure you are using your organisation's email address.
We will not be conducting an early access program for Green Star Communities v2. Due to tool development timelines, we will instead be using the consultation period to gather project level feedback.
We will be hosting a series of webinars detailing the consultation process, the new rating tool framework, and a deep dive into each of the categories out for consultation.
Projects registered or certified under previous tool versions can continue to use that version for certification and recertification. However, we strongly recommend that projects upgrade to the new tool. We will provide further guidance closer to the release of the tool.
After consultation closes, we will refine the tool based on the comments we have received. We will engage in further discussions as required, including with our ERPs.
