  • Invest in the Sustainability of Your Commercial Property

Are you a commercial property owner who has been thinking about making sustainable upgrades to your property?

Doing so can reduce its carbon footprint, improve energy, and water efficiency, which all make it more attractive to tenants, not to mention it improves your NABERS rating. NABERS stands for National Australian Built Environment Rating System and according to nabers.gov.au it ‘provides a rating from one to six stars for buildings efficiency across energy, water, waste and indoor environment. This helps building owners to understand their building’s performance versus other similar buildings, providing a benchmark for progress’.

Investing in sustainable upgrades could also improve the value of the property and depending on your situation and location, your new green credentials could make you eligible for other Government incentives.

If you are considering investing in the sustainability of your commercial property, there are cost effective finance solutions available.
