Green Star Accredited Professional – Performance (Accredited Professionals) are recognized for their comprehensive knowledge, experience and competency in applying the Green Star environmental rating system, and in particular, Green Star – Performance.
The ‘Green Star Accredited Professional’ credit awards points for the active participation and ongoing involvement of an Accredited Professional in a building’s facilities management or operations team during the building’s performance period and subsequent Green Star - Performance certification period.
The participation of a Green Star Accredited Professional in an advisory role during the performance period helps to ensure that the rating tool is applied effectively and as intended.
The participation of an Accredited Professional also helps to ensure that all members of the facilities management and operations team are supported and guided throughout the certification period to ensure optimum levels of environmental performance are realized.
It is a requirement of the ‘Green Star Accredited Professional’ credit that for the initial certification, the Accredited Professional has achieved their accreditation before the building is registered for Green Star - Performance certification. The Accredited Professional is required to be part of the team throughout the performance period and must maintain their accreditation throughout the subsequent certification period.
