Green Star Scheme
Green Star is an environmental rating scheme for buildings developed by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) to acknowledge and reward the environmental leaders in the building industry. Each Green Star rating tool is made up of nine categories: Management, Indoor Environment Quality, Energy, Transport, Water, Materials, Land Use & Ecology, Emissions and Innovation.
How you benefit
By using Unipods in concrete slab construction, clients could be eligible for credit rewards in Materials 3, 'Re-used and Recycled Products and Materials', which is part of the Materials category. The credit rewards that use of reused materials containing recycled content could contribute to the building's overall green star rating.
The GBCA is committed to developing a sustainable property industry in Australia and Unipod are committed to assisting clients to work towards this at project level.
