National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS)

Last updated: 16 August 2019
Abstract
Star rating covering energy use, water use and waste. It does this by using measured and verified performance information, such as utility bills, and converting them into an easy to understand star rating scale from one to six stars. For example, a 6 star rating demonstrates market-leading performance, while a 1 star rating means the building or tenancy has considerable scope for improvement
