A Green Building Council definition
• An official Green Building Council (GBC) is a national
non-profit, non-government organization that is part of
a global network recognized by the World Green
Building Council . GBCs are "transparent, consensusbased, not-for-profit coalition-based organizations with
no private ownership and diverse and integrated
representation from all sectors of the property
industry;" and their overarching goal is to promote a
transformation of the built environment towards one
that is sustainable (buildings and cities that are
environmentally sensitive, economically viable, socially
just and culturally significant).

Logo of the World Green Building
Council
• WGBC acts as an
umbrella organization
for existing, emerging
and developing GBCs
around the world
• As of October 2012, there
were at least 19 nations
with established GBCs,
seven recognized as
"emerging" members, and
dozens more in the
development process. As at
now there are 26
established, 15 emerging,
33 prospective, and 28
Associated working groups,
totaling 102.

Growth in numbers of Councils
• As of July 2014 there were over 102 Green Building
Councils at various stages of their development, an
increase of about 30 in the last three years.
• Many of these are growing rapidly and aspire to
become full members. The successful model set by the
Established Councils and overseen by the World Green
Building Council (WGBC) supports and guides this
growth – offering a powerful framework.
• An example of this growth is the Green Building
Council Russia, RuGBC, formed in 2009 and now
already in Emerging Status, seeking established status.

Why Green Star Rating Tool
• Green Star is a voluntary
environmental rating
system for buildings in
Australia. It was launched in
2003 by the Green Building
Council of Australia.
• The system considers a
broad range of practices for
reducing the environmental
impact of buildings and to
showcase innovation in
sustainable building
practices, while also considering
occupant health and
productivity and cost savings.
The resulting score is
translated into "Green Stars"
as follows:
• Score 45-59: 4 Star Green Star,
signifies 'Best Practice' in
environmentally sustainable
design and/or construction
• Score 60-74: 5 Star Green Star,
signifies 'Australian Excellence’
• Score 75-100: 6 Star Green
Star, signifies 'World
Leadership'

Why Green Star Rating Tool
• “We believe these highways
are contributing to the
development of African
infrastructures. Namibia
recently designated the
Ministry of Works and
Transport as Namibia’s
Champion for Infrastructure
Projects and communicated
this information to the
NEPAD Agency, “ Pohamba
said (Jan 2012)
• The New Partnership for
Africa's Development
(NEPAD) is a programme of
the African Union created
by Africans, for Africans and
implemented by Africans.

Why Green Star Rating Tool
• GBCSA has taken a
leading role to get many
African countries
supported. Namibia is
closest in links with SA
Building codes and
standards.
• LEED is taken by USA,
Canada, Mexico, Brazil,
for obvious regional
connectivity and intertrade historical ties
• GBCSA sees GBCNA
excitedly as a kid-brother
and are willing to train.
• GBCSA has seen the
support by GBA as a
lesson to pass on their
experiences to others.
• WGBC recognizes GBCSA
as the one with capacity
to support the African
continent
• Present WGBC Chair is
Bruce Kerswill of SA

Case of GBCSA
• After just seven years the Green
Building Council South Africa has
certified its 59th building. The
GBCSA has single handedly
activated and supported the
commercial property sector
towards a greener future, making
way for green buildings.
• The Council developed a series of
Green Star SA rating tools based
on the internationally-respected
Australian rating system,
customized for the South African
context. This set the standards for
green building providing clear
guidelines on what constitutes a
‘green building’.
•
•
It is a voluntary rating system
designed to allow the commercial
property sector to independently
rate and certify buildings and
developments via a common green
building ‘language’.
The tool for new buildings
encourages the built environment
stakeholders and professionals to
minimize the environmental
impacts of their developments.
Amongst other things it rewards
projects for initiatives that see a
reduction in waste sent to landfill
and the creation of more resource
efficient designs.

Pr. Eng, F.I.E.K., MCIArb,
Green Star SA Certification
• The overall result is a building
with reduced energy and water
•
•
•
•
consumption and lower operating
costs.
The Green Star SA tools allow for
certification of buildings based on the
following levels of achievement:
4 Star Green Star SA Certification –
‘Best Practice’
5 Star Green Star SA Certification –
‘South African Excellence’
6 Star Green Star SA Certification –
‘World Leadership’

“The GBCSA could not have achieved
the success it has to date without the
support of some very big players in
the sector that have pioneered the
way to a better place for people and
the planet.
The support has been widespread
but of most significance is the take up
of Green Star SA by Government
bodies and big businesses such as
banks and property developers,” says
Brian Wilkinson, CEO of the Green
Building Council South Africa.

Green Star SA Rating
• “Globally, the built
environment is responsible
for one third of all carbon
emissions and with global
warming a very real concern
that affects us all, a shift in
focus to green building is
something that should be
foremost in everyone’s
minds – from government,
to developers, to the
average man in the street.”
• “It’s encouraging to see the
country’s leadership take up
international best practice
when it comes to green
buildings and we are
delighted that there are
nine government buildings
certified to date. One of the
only three 6-star buildings
to be certified so far in
South Africa is also in this
category,” says Wilkinson
