Recently, the Green Building Council of Australia released Green Star –  Communities rating tool, one of the world’s first independent, transparent, national schemes able to assess and certify the sustainability of community-level development projects.

This rating tool is based on six national best practice principles to guide sustainable communities in Australia: Liveability;Economic Prosperity; Environment; Design; Governance; and Innovation.

Find more details about the rating tool at:


The next phase is to seek expressions of interest from potential PILOT projects that will enable the testing of the tool’s draft benchmarks and analyse feedback, which will then be incorporated into Version 1 of the tool.
