Green Star is a comprehensive, internationally-recognised rating scheme that evaluates the environmental standards of New Zealand's buildings. A Green Star rating puts your buildings at the top of the standards for sustainability.
Using a suite of rating toolkits developed for different building types and functions, buildings are evaluated to assess the environmental impact of their site selection, design, construction, and maintenance.
Credits are awarded within each of the categories based on the building's environmental merits. They take into consideration the unique development requirements and impacts of each sector.
Points are then weighted and an overall score is calculated, determining the project's Green Star rating.
The Green Star specification is currently under review but we understand points will be available relating to alternative fuels and clinker factor reduction.
