Green Star PVC Credit
Since first published in 2003, Green Star rating tools included a 'Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Minimisation' credit to encourage the minimisation of PVC in base building and interior fit out applications. The 'PVC Minimisation' credit was included in the first Green Star rating tool, Green Star - Office Design v1, and has featured in all subsequent tools
The Best Practice Guidelines for PVC in the Built Environment (The Guidelines) represent the most significant outcome of the PVC credit review. The Guidelines address opportunities for the minimisation of environmental and health impacts of the PVC life cycle. Under the PVC credit, projects can claim two points towards their Green Star rating if the project's flooring and resilient wall coverings, cable, pipe and conduit - which together account for most PVC use in buildings - meet the compliance.
