We’ve witnessed many customers and designers enquiring about sustainability credentials. Will my choice help me get Green Star? Is my decision positively servicing my environment and community?

 

 

SSC Certification aims to help businesses answer these questions and meet expectations. It also recognises any extra work being done by individual members to advance the sustainability of their operations in line with the SSC charter.

SSC Certification is also recognised as a criterion in the New Zealand Green Building Council’s Green Star (NZGBC) rating scheme under credit 20.

 

“We all need to play our part in sustainability… Our vision with the SSC Certification audit tool and the journey to achieving SSC Certification is to help businesses identify areas that they can easily improve upon, whilst providing the resources and tools to help them get there.” Troy Coyle, CEO HERA and Chair SSC
