The Commonwealth Bank will introduce sustainability in to their branches.

CBA is the first Australian financial institution to achieve a 5 Star Green Star from the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA).

They received the star for the 'standard of design' of its branches.

The designed features a number of sustainable elements including low chemical paints, Forestry Standard certified timber, reduced water consumption and forty percent of energy saving when compared with existing branches.

A 5 Star Green Star assessment reflects 'Australian Excellence' and the design is one of the most sustainable fitouts in Australia.

The design can be replicated across CBA's network.

The head of group property for Commonwealth Bank Jennifer Saiz says that that Green Star assessment confirms CBA's efforts to make a positive impact through the way it does its business.

Commonwealth Bank Place in Sydney's Darling Quarter has recently achieved Australia's first 'quadrella' of six Star Green Star ratings for design, construction, interior fittest and operational performance.
