We’re almost ready to release the future of Green Star. To give you plenty of time, we’re announcing key dates for those looking to register under our current rating tool, Green Star – Design & As Built.  


What do I need to know? 

  • We plan to release Green Star Buildings between 30 September and 15 October 2020.

What is the transition period? 

Between the release of Green Star Buildings and 31 December 2021:

We will create crosswalks between current and future Green Star rating tools to assist those looking to upgrade their registration, and those seeking to make use of the improved credits in Green Star Buildings. 

What else do I need to know?

  • Registration has occurred when the Certification Agreement is executed, and Certification fee has been paid.
