Sustainability Accreditations

The SBRC has engaged in two accreditation processes to inspire the design and construction of the facility. These accreditations drive innovation and seek to achieve sustainability in all aspects of the project.accreditations

Green Star

The Green Star rating system is a comprehensive, national, voluntary environmental rating system that evaluates the environmental design and construction of buildings and communities. Green Star rating tools are available for a range of project types, including offices, schools, hospitals, retail centres, industrial facilities and multi unit residential properties.

The SBRC has been awarded a 6 Star Green Star – Education Design v1 certified rating from the Green Building Council of Australia which represents  'World Leadership' in environmentally sustainable building practices.

Living Building Challenge 

The Living Building Challenge is an international standard of sustainability encompassing all aspects of a building project. The Sustainable Buildings Research Centre was designed and built to meet this high standard and began the 12-month audit process in January 2015 to achieve this certification. After a successful completion, the SBRC will become the first building in Australia to become certified. Find out how the SBRC is meeting the seven performance areas, the seven 'Petals':
