In March 2018, the 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, four rating tools are under development to realise this vision.
The GBCA are currently seeking feedback on the second rating tool under development – Green Star for Communities.
We are seeking like-minded organisations to partner with us for the next three years on this exciting evolution. In return, your organisation will be showcased as a leader both locally and internationally. Your organisation will receive exclusive briefings, putting you ahead of the competition, as well as unprecedented exposure over the next three years across GBCA communications, events, courses, webinars and podcasts.
Becoming a Future Focus Partner is your opportunity to associate your brand with Green Star, one of the world’s leading rating tool, long established as a driving force in the transformation of the built environment.
Green Star Future Focus offers an opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to the innovation and leadership that has helped drive our industry’s success to date.
If you are interested in discussing the benefits of your organisation’s involvement in Green Star Future Focus in more detail, please contact Debbie Roussakis, Partnerships Coordinator.
