What is the difference between basic and full (paid) access?

Two levels of access are provided make it possible for any higher education institution in the world to publicly report and share its campus sustainability data through STARS:

  • Basic access is available at no cost and allows an institution to document data in the online STARS Reporting Tool, with the option to publish an unscored report and receive STARS Reporter designation.
  • Full access is available by annual subscription and includes the option to earn a STARS Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum rating.

Your institution may move between the two levels of access as needed. For example, an institution with basic access can upgrade to full access at any time by ordering a subscription from within the Reporting Tool. Conversely, an institution that has its subscription lapse still retains basic access to its data.
