Green Star FAQs

FAQ F-00372
Changes to the Climate Positive Pathway requirements for 2030.

Currently in Green Star Buildings v1, projects certified after 1st January 2030, regardless of the project's registration date, are required to meet the Climate Positive Pathway requirements.

This has been changed so that instead, projects that reach practical completion after 1st January 2030 are to meet the 2030 Climate Positive Pathway requirements, regardless of the project's registration date.

Projects that reach practical completion before 1st January 2030 are subject to the Climate Positive Pathway requirements as per the project's registration date. These projects may submit and be certified by the GBCA after 1st January 2030.
