Green Star - Communities projects

Project teams who were registered as a PILOT project between May 2014 and February 2015 will be using the Green Star - Communities PILOT v0.1 rating tool. Click here to view the previous version of the rating tool.

Project teams should note that if they were registered between June 2014 and February 2015 they are able to use either the Submission Guidelines v0.1 released in May 2014 or v0.2.

Should the project team choose to use a combination of credits from either version of the Submission Guidelines it must be clear in the credit submission for each credit which version of the credit your are using. This will be referred to as either PILOT v0.1 or PILOT v0.2.

Credit and Credit Criterion Substitution

All projects are encouraged to use the most up to date version of the rating tool. However, projects are allowed to use the credits and credit criterion from any new version of the rating tool released after their project’s registration date.
