Energy rating system for industrial premises

Monday, 13 October, 2008

Warehouses and factories can now have a green makeover with the release of the Green Building Council of Australia's new ‘Green Star — Industrial PILOT’ rating tool.

The tool will assess the environmental attributes of new and refurbished industrial facilities against the eight categories of Green Star, including energy, water, emissions, materials, indoor environment quality, ecology, management and transport plus innovation.

Romilly Madew, chief executive of the Green Building Council of Australia, believes the release of this tool is significant for the property industry: “We all recognise that this is a time of economic change, even facing a slowdown, but we cannot stop including environmentally sustainable initiatives in all of our buildings.

“In the past 12 months, more projects have registered for, and achieved, a Green Star rating than the previous four years combined. Now with the release of the new Green Star — Industrial PILOT rating tool, we are taking another step towards the creation of a truly sustainable future for Australia.”

The Green Star — Industrial PILOT tool is available to download from the Green Building Council of Australia website www.gbca.org.au.
