Green Star South Africa (Africa)

The Green Building Council SA uses the Green Star South Africa rating system, based on the Australian system and customised for the South African context. Building owners submit documentation to the Green Building Council SA to achieve a Green Star SA rating.

Green Star SA employs independent assessors to evaluate submissions and allocate points based on the green measures that have been implemented. Certification is awarded for 4-Star, 5-Star or 6-Star Green Star SA ratings.

The Green Building Council SA develops the Green Star SA rating tools to provide an objective measurement for green buildings in South Africa and to recognise and reward environmental leadership in the property industry. Each Green Star SA rating tool reflects a different market sector including office, retail, multi-unit residential, public and education buildings, as well as others that are in development like interiors and existing buildings performance.
