Future Focus

The GBCA is about to embark on an ambitious journey to reshape our 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.

Green Star Future Focus workshop sessions

During May and June we held a series of interactive workshops to go beyond the discussion paper and listen to what you have to say. Over 100 persons attended workshops across Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and Brisbane. A report will be released over the next few months detailing the feedback received on the workshops. We thank all participants for their time.

Join the future

We have a track record of success.

15 years ago we set out to transform the built environment through our rating system Green Star. Working together with industry, we’ve affected huge change in the built environment. Since 2003, more than 1,750 buildings have sought and achieved Green Star certification. This is what transformation looks like.

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.
