Seven new reasons why it's easier to use Green Star

Seven 'next generation' credits from the Public Building v1 rating tool can now be applied to other rating tools.

Industry has told us that these seven credits are easier to understand and use than the comparative credits in other rating tools.

If you have already registered your project, you can use these credits, where relevant, if you choose. Questions? Please contact our Manager Green Star Operations, Zofia Kuypers.
