Green Star News - July 2015


We've updated to Green Star – Design & As Built v1.1


Green Star – Design & As Built v1.1 is released this month and contains new pathways for some credits, updated guidance for others and general clarification and corrections throughout the rating tool. View the change log with the Submission Guidelines to see what has changed.

From 1 August 2015 all new projects registered under Green Star – Design & As Built will be required to use version 1.1.

What if I'm already registered under Green Star – Design & As Built v1?

We want the best possible outcome for your project. So if you are already registered under version 1 you now have 2 options:

  • Continue towards certification under version 1
  • Take advantage of updates and clarifications by moving to version 1.1 

How often will these updates occur?

Generally, there will be an update to the rating tool in October of each year. However occasionally, like this year, we will release updates more often. Every 3 years, with the help of industry, we will conduct a complete review of the rating tool to ensure it remains relevant and useful.

Volume Certification Process Guide


Volume certification is a customised service to certify a group of projects that share common elements. This streamlined approach to Green Star certification means lower costs and faster route to certification when certifying the design and construction of multiple projects.

We have now released the Volume Certification Process Guide to help you understand the process and find out if Volume certification is right for your project.

Portfolio Certification Process Guide


In the same way Volume certification makes it easier for project teams to certify the design and construction of projects, Portfolio certification allows you to certify the sustainable operations of a group of assets through Green Star – Performance.

We have now released the Portfolio Certification Process Guide to help you understand the process and find out if Portfolio certification is right for your assets.
