Promoting your Green Star project

There are two phases to marketing your Green Star project

1. Registered Green Star projects
2. Certified Green Star projects

Registered Green Star projects 

You are permitted to market your Green Star project after your project has been registered with us using the Green Star trade mark. 

Certified Green Star projects

You are permitted to market your Green Star project after your project has achieved certification using the Green Star certified logo.

The Green Star trade marks

Green Star and the Green Star certified logo are trade marks owned by Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). They constitute valuable intellectual property and are protected by law. Any unauthorised use of the trade marks constitutes infringement of our rights and may result in legal action.

Marketing Rules and Style Guide

This guide sets out the rules for the use of the trade marks and provides marketing ideas to help promote your Green Star project.

When marketing your Green Star project it is important to make clear which aspect of the project is Green Star rated (e.g. the performance or construction of a building). 

These guidelines do not cover every possible marketing scenario. We encourage you to contact us when you are ready to market your project so we can provide specific recommendations regarding use of the trade marks to promote your project.
