Two of Australia’s leading sustainability organisations have come together to make it easier for industry to deliver sustainability through the infrastructure and buildings that are rapidly shaping our cities.
The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) and the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) launch a guide to explain how to integrate the Green Star – Design & As Built rating tool for buildings, and Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) Design & As Built ratings tool for infrastructure, on urban development projects.
Passive House Standard & Green Star – Design & As Built

To simplify the process for projects pursuing both programs, GBCA and APHA have developed the following guidance to show how Passive House can assist projects seeking a Green Star rating.

It also reviews what has been learned from case studies, improvements in the rating tools, industry practices and knowledge as well as the new cost benchmarks, business benefits and economics of green buildings. Having set out the current position this Report examines realistic future goals and targets, continuing barriers, and the actions required to enable the industry to continue to move forward.
