The word on Green Star - Communities

“Grocon is pleased to be involved in the development of the Green Star - Communities tool. The expansion of the successful single building model to a community platform can be only beneficial for the development of sustainable communities now and in the future. The tool will be a key driver in the development of our own Swanston Square precinct development at the Carlton Brewery site.”

"Green Star - Communities provides a holistic view of a development project’s performance across the 3 Ps - People, Planet and Profit, and will establish a new benchmark for development to ensure that our cities are more sustainable into the future."

“Green Star Communities has gathered the best thinking from all aspects of our sector and we’re excited to participate in the pilot phase of a tool that acknowledges and rewards the positive legacy of sustainable community development.”

“The University of Melbourne is proud to be a gold sponsor of Green Star - Communities and actively seeks to develop opportunities for sustainability-related research on its campuses. The pilot phase of Green Star - Communities is a valuable opportunity for the University to develop projects incorporating holistic perspectives of sustainability in a structured and externally verified manner. This extends the University’s existing commitment to minimum 5 star design ratings for new buildings and 4 star for major refurbishments.”

“Green Star – Communities objectives align with Aurecon’s focus on innovation and belief that sustainable design is good design, so our involvement as a sponsor and technical reviewer was a natural step for our team. We look forward to continuing our involvement through the PILOT phase, working with a number of our clients and using our multidisciplinary design skills to help them build strong vibrant and sustainable communities.”
