Green Star - Performance set to launch
The Green Star - Performance rating tool will be officially launched at the Sydney Opera House on Thursday 10 October. More than 30 building owners have already expressed interest in piloting the rating tool. Are you prepared for the pilot phase?  Read up on the rating tool and express your interest

Coming soon: new rulings to reduce time and costs
In coming weeks, we'll be releasing a new round of rulings for the Green Star Design and As Built rating tools. The rulings (formerly known as TCs and CIR Rulings) will correct errors, provide alternative ways of meeting credit requirements and reduce documentation and modelling. The rulings will also introduce new deemed-to-satisfy criteria that will save you time and money on your Green Star submission.

A helping hand with your documentation

New short report submission templates are now available for Green Star Indoor Environment Quality, Energy and Materials credits.  Download before you document!

New reporting criteria for construction and demolition waste
After extensive consultation with industry and our waste reference panel, we've introduced new Construction and Demolition Waste Reporting Criteria for projects under the Green Star - Interiors PILOT.  Find out more
