Green Star ratings for existing buildings.
Achieve leading Green Star ratings for your commercial building and prove your organisation’s commitment to energy efficiency and carbon reductions.
Independent efficiency ratings.
Why Green Star?
Investors, customers, boards and governments are demanding greater energy efficiency and reduced carbon emissions from both new and existing buildings. Without a clear and complete overview of your building’s current performance, meeting these demands meaningfully is challenging at best and impossible at worst.
Green Star offers one of New Zealand’s most holistic and thorough assessments, offering an objective and independent report on your building’s performance across multiple metrics, helping you to meaningfully measure and manage sustainability.
“We believe adopting environmentally sustainable practices … is the right thing to do and we see it as a win-win outcome on every level.”

What is Green Star?
Green Star is a complete assessment tool used to accurately measure, understand and communicate the performance of your commercial building across a broad range of measures, identifying possible areas for cost savings, carbon reductions, and future improvements.
The New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) provides the Green Star rating, from 0 to 6 stars, for a wide range of commercial buildings including retailers, offices, hospitals, schools, and more. This rating follows a period of assessment, provided by expert consultants, including ESP.

There are 4 types of Green Star ratings, suitable for different occupants and businesses.
Green Star – Performance.
Green Star – Performance assesses the operational performance of all types of existing buildings across nine holistic impact categories, providing a single, simple and comprehensive rating for any existing commercial building.
