Homestar v4 Platinum Sponsorship

14/09/2017

CREATING SUSTAINABLE HOMES

Green Gorilla are passionate supporters and a Platinum Sponsor of Homestar v4. This independent tool rates New Zealand homes' environmental impact and performance to awards points across seven categories, including construction waste. Points are added up across the categories to deliver a rating, i.e. HomeStar v4 Rating 6.

There are two stages to a Homestar rating:

  • Design – this rating assesses the full and final plans.
  • Build – this rating occurs after the home construction. It certifies that there has been the full implementation of the features in the design rating.

Why is Homestar v4 important to Green Gorilla?

Construction and demolition waste makes up half of NZ's total waste going to landfill. Homestar v4 encourages reducing construction waste, reducing 2-3 tonnes of landfill for every home built. Homestar v4 also promotes making homes warmer and drier, which means healthier homes for our families.

Green Gorilla's Construction and Demolition Waste Processing Facility divert more than 75% of incoming construction and demolition waste from Auckland's landfills. All the waste processing facilities at Green Gorilla are 100% electric sourced from CarboNZero certified electricity.

Green Gorilla can provide you with all the reporting and expert advice required for your certifications.
