The Green Building Council of Australia (GCBA) encourages the adoption of sustainable practices in the Australian property industry. In 2003 they launched the Green Star environmental rating system for buildings. Tradies joined the GBCA in August 2016 with a view to achieving Green Star certification in future building projects.
