About us

As of June 2018, STAR Communities has formally merged with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Now part of the LEED for Cities & Communities Team at USGBC, we are working to evolve the STAR Community Rating System and the LEED for Cities performance metrics into a globally applicable program that combines performance standards and action strategies into a streamlined set of opportunities for benchmarking, verification and recognition.

Expected in early 2019 will be a new, expanded LEED for Cities & Communities program that integrates content from STAR and aligns with global programs, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
