Webinar 1:The proposed rating tool and Responsible category 

Green Star Communities v2 is a significant update to our rating tool for master planned precincts. Tackling rising issues of climate action, equity inclusion, affordable housing and resilience, the updated rating tool addresses this through our Future Focus framework and a Climate Positive Pathway, ensuring more inclusive, resilient, and biodiverse precincts that are on a trajectory towards decarbonisation. 

Join us for a series of webinars running weekly from 26 June to 17 July 2023 detailing the consultation process, the new rating tool framework, and a deep dive on each of the categories out for consultation. See below for webinar schedule. 

This first webinar of the series is a broad outline of the rating tool, key changes you should be aware of and an overview of the development and consultation process. It also provides an outline of the Responsible category which focuses on ensuring the precinct is planned, designed, and constructed to a high standard, with appropriate collaboration and targets.  

This webinar is suitable for those looking to get an insight into the evolution of Green Star Communities. Urban planning and design professionals, architects, sustainability managers, government land organisation’s and local councils as well as current users of the tool are encouraged to attend.  

Consultation on the credits and the Climate Positive Pathway in Green Star Communities v2 will be open from 15 June to 15 August. We invite you to help shape the future of Australia’s built environment by providing feedback on our new rating tool.
