Global Tools: Green Star South Africa

No Expiration


This course opens with an introduction to the Green Star South Africa rating system. You will hear about how a green building rating system is developed from one of the authors. Then, for global context, we compare the Green Star building rating tools to LEED rating systems. The greatest takeaway from this course is to learn how to weave socio-economic strategies, championed by Green Star, into your next LEED project. The course closes with a look ahead to future green buildings in the broader context of the African continent. You’ll hear first person stories about being on Green Star project teams in South Africa and Australia.

Alyson Laura LEED AP, WELL AP
Director of Resilience Education for GBES

Jason Buch, LEED AP, Green Star SA AP
Green Building Council South Africa
