What you need to know

This course has been developed to help you and your teams better understand Green Star, build your knowledge on managing risk from the tendering stage through construction, and managing documentation for compliance. 

We will be exploring the contractor-centric credits and take a deep dive into sourcing and tracking sustainable and responsible materials, as well as specific credits including Exposure to Toxins. You will learn how construction materials must be vetted for compliance against VOC and formaldehyde content, and the benefit of materials with higher consideration to environmental sustainability. We will also look at onsite practices including managing waste and compliant construction practices.  

Take away essential information to improve your processes, making them more efficient and effective.
