Green Star FAQs

FAQ F-00116
Does the NABERS rated period need to align with the performance period in Green Star - Performance?

Yes, as closely as possible. 

Project that are pursuing any NABERS pathway in Green Star - Performance must align the rated period of the NABERS rating with the performance period of the Green Star - Performance rating as closely as possible, within three months either side of the performance period. 

For example, if the performance period is 01/01/2018 - 31/12/2018 for Green Star - Performance, the 12 month NABERS rated period must fall within 01/10/17 to 31/03/19.

The NABERS Certificate and report must be provided as part of the submission.
