The Socio-economic Category (SEC) PILOT is an additional category available to interiors and all new building tools. It recognises the socio-economic achievements and initiatives of green building projects.
The development of this category was sponsored by Old Mutual Property.
The SEC applies to developments or projects which qualify for any of the existing Green Star SA tools – Office v1 and Office v1.1; Retail Center v1; Multi-Unit Residential v1; Public & Education Building v1 or Interiors v1. (See the eligibility criteria for each tool).
The SEC Pilot category is available for a separate SEC certification and individual credits can also be used as innovation points.
Projects wishing to register for SEC Pilot category certification with their Green Star SA certification should register their interest with the GBCSA via firstname.lastname@example.org. Projects wishing to target any of the SEC Pilot credits under the project’s Innovation category should prepare project submission documents with the Round 1 and Round 2 submission process as per usual GBCSA submission process.
