Green Star FAQs


FAQ F-00289
Can products/materials be weighted against the total material cost for the Circular Economy Leadership Challenge?

Yes, in the Circular Economy Leadership Challenge, project teams may weight the chosen products against the total material cost associated with the project in lieu of the total project cost.

This is on the basis that the Leadership Challenge focuses on the circularity of materials/products within a project therefore the alternate approach aligns with the scope of the credit.
