CAF building certification has recently received recognition within the Green Star – Performance rating tool. Green Star – Performance assesses the operational performance of existing buildings. This new inclusion aims to recognise property owners who adopt a holistic approach to sustainability by mandating ethical labour standards in their cleaning supply chains.
Portfolios or individual buildings that have achieved CAF 3 Star Standard Certification are now able to include this as part of their Green Star Performance submission. Each building that has achieved CAF 3 Star Standard Certification will be able to target one point via the CAF Innovation challenge. For portfolios, the total credit will depend on the percentage of the buildings within the portfolio that are CAF-certified.
