Green Star submission guidelines free for members

An exclusive benefit for GBCA members

We know there are no greater sustainability champions than our members. And we also know that, as champions, you need easy access to information to make our buildings and communities better places to live, work and play. 

This is why we are excited to offer our members free access to Green Star submission guidelines.

This exclusive member benefit means you can download submission guidelines for Green Star – Design & As Built, Green Star – Communities, Green Star – Performance and Green Star – Interiors. All that we ask in return is that you use these guidelines to create better buildings, fitouts and communities.


How do I use the submission guidelines?

Visit our online shop to gain access to PDF versions of submission guidelines. These can be downloaded onto the device of your choice. The PDFs are unlocked, and you can view them, copy information or print as many times as you like. You can send the guidelines to any other member of your project team, suppliers, clients, and you can even drop parts of the text into your company’s own internal communications. However, if you would like to use the guidelines to sell a direct service (such as embedding the information into a course or an online system for a third party), please call us first – as we can explore a range of options to support you.

The submission guidelines will continue to be revised frequently over time and you’ll be able to download these updates for as long as your company’s GBCA membership is valid.


Can I download legacy rating tool submission guidelines? 

Our members can still view all legacy Green Star rating tools for free via the Technical Manual Viewer or you can purchase them from our online shop.


What can non-members do?

If your company is not a member of the GBCA, you can purchase the guidelines from our online shop. Guidelines for non-members are licensed for up to five users. If you would like to discuss purchasing licenses for more than five users, please contact us at [email protected].
