The road to a carbon positive future starts with knowing where you are and what your current environmental impact is.
NABERS, or the National Australian Built Environment Rating System, measures the environmental performance of buildings, tenancies and homes and helps you set a plan of how to improve that over time. Buildings can achieve NABERS ratings for energy, water, waste and indoor air quality.
CitySwitch uses the NABERS formal assessment and reporting process to help tenancies reduce carbon emissions, improve office energy efficiency and save money.
When you sign up to CitySwitch, you make a commitment to rate your office with NABERS Energy.
Most property owners, managers and large tenants in Australia use NABERS to understand, improve and communicate their environmental performance, and to benchmark their progress against others in the sector.
In fact, the federal government’s Commercial Building Disclosure scheme requires most sellers or lessors of office space larger than 1,000 square metres to disclose an energy efficiency rating at the time of sale or lease.
