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