Green Star - Performance Foundation Course
The Green Star – Performance Foundation Course focuses on the fundamentals of the Green Star – Performance rating tool for existing building operations. The course covers the business case for sustainable operations and facilities management, the online rating tool, the categories and credits within Green Star – Performance, and the steps to register and certify a project.
The half day format consists of a lecture, Q&A and a group activity workshop, which provide a theoretical understanding as well as practical skills in the application of the Green Star – Performance rating tool.
In a Green Star – Performance Foundation Course first, we will be talking to Naomi Martin, Manager Sustainability at the Sydney Opera House who will discuss the Sydney Opera House' 4 Star Green Star - Performance PILOT rating including why they went for the rating and the lessons learnt.
When you attend the Green Star – Performance Foundation Course you will:
- learn how to apply Green Star – Performance to your existing building or portfolio
- gain exposure to the online rating tool
- achieve a better understanding of sustainable operational practices
- connect with like-minded individuals in the property and facilities management industry.
