WHAT IS GREEN STAR?
Our built environment is currently the world’s single largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, it consumes around a third of our water, and generates 40 per cent of our waste.
Launched by Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) in 2003, Green Star is Australia’s largest voluntary and truly holistic sustainability rating system for buildings, fitouts and communities.
Green Star aims to transform the built environment by:
• reducing the impact of climate change
• enhancing our health & quality of life
• restoring and protecting our planet’s biodiversity and ecosystems
• driving resilient outcomes for buildings, fitouts, and communities
• contributing to market transformation and a sustainable economy
The Green Building Council of Australia’s ‘Green Star – Interiors’ certification rates the sustainable design and construction of any building fitout. The rating tool encourages a holistic approach to designing and constructing fitouts by rewarding sustainability best practice and excellence.

When ‘Green Star – Interiors’ began, the primary market was commercial office fitouts. Today, retail fitouts such as Country Road, Westpac, Commonwealth Bank and T2 are choosing the interiors rating tool to objectively certify their projects and achieve their sustainability goals.
In their recent end of year report, the Green Building Council of Australia reported on their ‘Green Star – Interiors’ certification rating and congratulated our client Country Road for achieving this status. ONE68 have now proudly managed the interior fitouts for both of their two 5 Star Green Star accredited projects at Chadstone and Westfield Doncaster Shopping Centres. Elle Roseby the Country Road Managing Director explains…
“Backed by a 5 Star Green Star rating, Country Road’s flagship store at Chadstone in Victoria revolutionises the retail experience, maintaining our commitment to quality while demonstrating our connection to the environment. It shows that sustainability in fashion extends into retail store fitouts, as well as garment production.”
