Green Star is an internationally recognised sustainability rating system for buildings and was launched by the Green Building Council of Australia in 1993.
The Green Star rating tools are designed to measure your building against a number of different building categories, including energy. These categories are then divided into credits, and are assigned against a specific property feature or area of improvement for sustainability improvement. Points are then given to the project based on how well it delivers against each credit’s goals.
Older buildings can also qualify for this rating and therefore it is worthwhile to look at changing your emergency and exit lighting to LED fittings when you replace or upgrade these. As a building owner of an older building, a Green Star rating gives you an edge over other buildings for lease in the market.
