IT IS official! South Gippsland Water are good NABERS.
NABERS is the National Australian Built Environment Rating System, and SGW head office at 14-18 Pioneer Street in Foster recently received a four star energy rating out of a possible five from the national organisation.
NABERS is a performance-based rating system for existing buildings. NABERS rates all types of commercial offices or residential buildings on the basis of their measured operational impacts on the environment.
The audit based system measures energy used to provide lighting, heating and cooling, computers and other office equipment. By completing the NABERS rating, building occupants can manage and reduce environmental impacts.
South Gippsland Water operates an ongoing sustainability program reviewing and improving all areas of operations and effect on our natural environment.
Managing Director of South Gippsland Water, Steve Evans, said, “It is pleasing to receive this four star energy rating for our head office. The NABERS program has provided a measure for the corporation to continue to reduce energy used in this building and in turn greenhouse emissions across our region.
