Green Star Certification

The Green Star certification is one of the fastest growing global green building rating systems. The certification promotes integrated, whole building design whilst reducing the environmental impact of developments and recognising environmental leadership.

We drive Green Star submission processes to ensure each building that we work with is as sustainable and innovative as possible, whilst ensuring that the Green Star certification criteria are met and the project is recognised and rewarded as such.
