Living Building Challenge & Green Star Crosswalk
The Green Building Council of Australia and the International Living Future Institute recognize the value of multiple certifications for projects pursuing both Green Star and Living Building Challenge in order to promote holistic environmental and social outcomes at a building level.
This document provides assistance for new buildings seeking to obtain both a certified Green Star – Design & As Built rating and a Living Building Challenge Certified rating. To simplify the process for projects pursuing both programs, GBCA and ILFI have developed the following guidance to show how Green Star can assist in obtaining either a Living, Petal or Net Zero Energy Certification under the Living Building Challenge. It also shows how Living Building Challenge Imperatives are recognized in Green Star.
