Green Star - Performance Foundation Course
The Green Star – Performance Foundation Course focuses on the fundamentals of the Green Star – Performance rating tool for existing building operations. The course covers the business case for sustainable operations and facilities management, portfolio certification, the categories and credits within Green Star – Performance, and the steps to register and certify a project.
The half day format consists of a lecture, Q&A and a group activity workshop, which provide a theoretical understanding as well as practical skills in the application of the Green Star – Performance rating tool.
When you attend the Green Star – Performance Foundation Course you will:
- learn how to apply Green Star – Performance to your existing building or portfolio
- achieve a better understanding of sustainable operational practices
- connect with like-minded individuals in the property and facilities management industry.
The Green Star – Performance Foundation Course is the first step in becoming involved in the GBCA’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program which will help you to maintain your knowledge of Green Star, and stay in touch with latest trends and technologies in sustainable development.
