The Green Building Council and the Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority launched a new online tool as part of the NabersNZ programme last week.
Project manager Mike Frew said the new calculator would allow building owners & tenants to get a clearer picture of what they need to do to get a desired star rating under the voluntary rating system programme.
Nabers (National Australian built environment rating system) has been used for more than 10 years in Australia, where it rates water, waste & indoor environment quality and energy.
Nabers & NabersNZ are owned by the New South Wales Office of Environment & Heritage, which licences the New Zealand operation to the Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority. The Green Building Council administers it.
