The National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) has launched an Australian-first search engine for green buildings.
“This new tool will allow people to find the best examples of sustainable buildings and green businesses in the country,” Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton said.
NABERS is a national program, administered by the NSW government, that measures the environmental performance of buildings. This initiative allows organisations to find Australia’s most sustainable buildings to house their operations, host their events, and do business, Upton said.
“Our State, Commonwealth and Local Government partners can now easily highlight buildings and businesses that are leading examples of sustainability in their jurisdictions by checking out www.nabers.gov.au,” she said.
Meanwhile NABERS has also brought new members into the National Steering Committee for a three-year term.
“For the first time, NABERS will be led by two very talented women: Michelle Croker from the Commonwealth Department of Environment and Energy as Government Chair and Francesca Muskovic from the Property Council of Australia as Stakeholder Chair.
“The new Committee is the most inclusive to date with representatives from state and territory governments throughout Australia, as well as the Commonwealth.”
