GREENTAG RATING: WHY ECO DESIGN MATTERS
A Quick Guide for Architects, Specifiers & Builders
Today’s customers are increasingly conscious of their eco footprint. Indeed, your clients appreciate that sustainable buildings have lower operating, maintenance and environmental costs, generate better long-term economic value, and offer superior levels of human satisfaction and productivity.
Australia’s building industry has adapted rapidly to consumer demand, adopting rigorous standards set by the country’s peak eco-building bodies.
As the foremost consultation and certification body for sustainable construction, The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) provides critical benchmarks for ecologically responsible building in Australia. The GBCA’s renowned Green Star rating system offers the most reliable measure of operational performance for Australian buildings.
