  • 1. NABERS RATINGS: Increasing Environmental Awareness Among Businesses The National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) is a government initiative that assesses buildings for their environmental performance. It evaluates a building’s energy efficiency, indoor environment quality, waste management, and water usage. These factors help accredited NABERS assessors like Green Pass determine a property’s impact on the environment. The government encourages businesses to get NABERS rating as it offers many benefits to building owners and managers. These include: REDUCE OPERATIONAL COSTS NABERS assessors like Green Pass help businesses reduce their operational costs by identifying areas that need improvement. For instance, evaluating office energy consumption is part of calculating a business’ NABERS rating. Green Pass will gather a company’s energy consumption data and other details, such as building size, hours of operation, and climate setting. A rating of six means the building or business is a market leader. A zero rating means the business has to improve its facilities. NABERS database showed that buildings with good rating save about 345,100 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. It also reported a 9% average improvement on energy efficiency. Those with good NABERS water rating save approximately 1.3 billion litres yearly.
  • 2. INCREASE MARKET VALUE A good NABERS rating from Green Pass gives building owners a competitive advantage in the real estate market. It can increase the market value of a property. Owners and managers can promote their building performance to attract more renters, which can help increase their income. The 2011 Building Better Returns report shows buildings with higher NABERS rating enjoyed a lower vacancy rate. The increase in demand for green buildings encourages business to get NABERS ratings for their properties.
