Green Star is booming. More New Zealanders than ever before are working in, learning in, creating businesses in, creating memories in Green Star buildings.

But the carbon pollution from New Zealand buildings is also booming.

That’s why we need your advice, expertise and feedback.

We want to improve Green Star, so that it slashes carbon pollution from buildings and construction even further than it does already, and we can’t do this without your feedback.

Specifically, we’re planning on upgrading the existing version of Green Star so it has more focus on embodied carbon – the pollution spewed into the air when making and manufacturing building materials and products.

While we’re doing this, we’ll also be making a few more tweaks to Green Star.

Over the next couple of years, Green Star will have a greater and greater focus on cutting embodied carbon pollution.

This consultation is a key milestone on this journey, and we need your direction.

Read the consultation document, outlining the proposed changes here.

And provide your feedback using the survey form here.

Consultation is open until 23 December 2021.
