Green Star is an internationally recognised sustainability rating system for buildings. Established by the Green Building Council of Australia in 2003, Green Star is Australia's only national, voluntary, rating system for buildings and communities. The Green Star rating system operates across sectors dictating how the built environment in Australia is designed, constructed and operated.
By acknowledging that the built environment is currently the world's single largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, consumes a third of our water and generates 40 per cent of our waste, Green Star is helping to develop environmental efficiencies in our buildings, boost productivity, create jobs and improve the health and wellbeing of communities.
The Green Star rating system is a set of practice benchmarks for sustainability that is widely accepted in the marketplace by clients, specifiers and building users.
