100 Green Building Icons in New Zealand
The World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) today congratulated New Zealand on attaining its 100th Green Star rating.
Green Star is New Zealand’s national, holistic rating system that certifies the design and construction of sustainable commercial buildings.
WorldGBC Chief Executive Officer, Jane Henley, said that New Zealand’s commercial property sector, in line with the global market, was increasingly recognising that green buildings were not only better for the environment, but also more efficient and resilient assets that were ‘future proofed’ against the risk of early obsolescence.
“Green buildings stack up financially, socially and
environmentally. New Zealand’s 100 Green Star projects,
including the three impressive buildings just certified,
will continue to inspire others to embrace
sustainability,” Ms Henley
