GBCSA invites public comment on 'Green Star SA'
The Green Building Council SA (GBCSA) has launched their first green building rating tool. The pilot tool can be downloaded and reviewed
The tool sets standards and benchmarks for green building, and enables an objective assessment as to how "green" a building is. The rating system sets out a "menu" of all the green measures that can be incorporated into a building to make it green.
The rating tool will be released as Version 1 (v1) in November 2008.
GBCSA will also be hosting their first annual convention and exhibition, "Green Cities SA" from 7 to 9 September at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
