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 first rating tool under development – Green Star for New Buildings.
Green Star for New Buildings aims to meet the demands of the next decade and beyond with aspirational benchmarks for the design and construction of buildings. It also provides a pathway for building owners to address carbon emissions over time.
