Based in Australia, Octief Group provides NABERS Sections for measuring the efficiency of building in energy management, water consumption, waste management and indoor environment management.
Energy – The greenhouse gas emissions from Australia’s commercial buildings are growing by 3-4% annually. NABERS energy assists owners and tenants of commercial buildings to reduce their energy use, cost and use of greenhouse emissions. It scales a building from 0-5 stars depending on the energy efficiency of the building, 0 being polluted and 5 being energy efficient with high-quality design structure and equipment.
Water – Commercial buildings account for more than 10% of urban water consumption, which is a critical crisis. NABERS water section measures the water consumption of a building and scales it from 0-5 stars depending on how water efficient the building is, 0 being least efficient and 5 being best practise.
