Australian Green Star® rating tools update: How everything you thought you knew (including EPDs) has changed

We are on a mission to help clear the confusion out there for building materials' manufacturers and the green built environment industry. We are starting with EPDs. Please join us for this online talk October 12 at 3pm (AEDT). The team at Global GreenTag International have heard your pain and we want to help ground you – remove the confusion - and take a clearer path to understand how it all works, without overwhelm. If you are clear, the market will be clear.

Product certifications, declarations and verifications can be a heady experience, even for the technocrats. What are they? What do they mean? And most critically, how do they translate and earn credits for projects under the Green Star® tools?

The session, with staff from Global GreenTag, including David Baggs (CEO & Program Director), Dr Nana Bortsie-Ayree (Product Assessments) and Brett Hazlett and Olivia Xing (Certification Sales) will help clarify:

- Where Green Star is at – a cross roads
- Why it is important not to depend on the legacy Green Star Tools and why to choose your Global GreenTag Certifications and Declarations, wisely.
- What the future is going to demand – improve your understanding of the differences between externally and internally verified EPDs.
