Future Focus

Powerhouse Parramatta, NSW. Infrastructure NSW. Targeting a 5 Star Green Star Buildings v1 rating.

In March 2018, Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) embarked on an ambitious journey to reshape the Green Star rating system and bring you the next evolution of the tools.

Green Star Future Focus will see the rating system evolve and adapt to ensure the sustainable built environment delivers what it needs to, whilst also responding to global megatrends and emerging challenges. Currently, five rating tools are under development to realise this vision.
