Green Star Governance

The Green Star Advisory Committee and supporting advisory groups ensure the rating system continues to be Australia’s leading rating tool for the built environment. They also ensure continuous improvement of the certification process, and increase industry participation in Green Star.

Green Star Advisory Committee

The role of the Green Star Advisory Committee is to ensure that the Green Star rating system remain rigorous, market relevant, valued by industry and continues to be Australia’s leading rating tool for the built environment. The committee must ensure that a consensus process continues to be used to evolve Green Star in accordance with the mission and strategic plan of the GBCA.

Green Star Advisory Groups

The Green Star Advisory Committee will be supported by two advisory groups responsible for assisting the committee in fulfilling its function. The advisory groups will be:

  • Industry Advisory Group: to provide insight into industry activity and trends, as well as providing advice and recommendations on how best to manage changes to the rating system.
  • Technical Advisory Group: to assist in the development of the rating system, and provide guidance on benchmarks, technical development, and future direction.
